    It can last up to 5 days in fertile cervical fluid and in non-fertile fluid not so long. I think its only an hour or so outside of the body.

    If it's only an hour outside a body how do they do accurate morphology tests? (genuine question anyone know?)

    I think it is a controversial one. I have data in one of my lectures that says anything from 72 hours to seven days. I think about 3-4 days in the crypts of the cervix is usually the maximum. As for out of the body - it depends on the conditions, temperature etc. Most condoms have spermicide and so they won't live for more than a few minutes.

    Thanks to everyone.

    And I have always wondered also how they do sperm analysis if they die off so quick. hmm, off to do some research I guess..

    When you do a semen analysis, they have to be tested within 2 hours. And the sperm is still alive.
    One of my DH's semen analysis's, they didnt test it until 3 hours afterwards and there was still 'some' alive but not much.
    If kept at body temp, they live longer.

    Oh ok. I just thought you were allowed to have a bit of humour in threads as I see other members doing it all the time.

    I honestly didn't think it would be such a drama.
