  • Long enough because now I'm 34 weeks pregnant!! lol. I think that it is 3-5 days depending on where you are at in your cycle. When you are most fertile I think they can live longer because the conditions are more favorable.

  • Three days on average. Occasionally you get a man in really good health and it lives six or seven days. but the text book answer is three days the same amount of time an egg is ideal for conception.
