Hi Anon,

Thanks for your question! Sperm life can vary depending on environmental conditions. For example, if you're referring to sperm life once it is outside the male body and into the female body, then sperm can live for up to 5 days inside the woman's body. On the other hand, sperm ejaculated outside of the body can only survive from a few minutes to a couple of hours.

Best Wishes,
