How long can sperm live inside a woman to get

Patient : How long can sperm live inside a woman to get her pregnant?
Doctor :   Hello Thanks for the query. A normal sperm with no deformities can survive up to 72 hours to five days in the women 's genital tract and can cause a conception. The longer the time interval from ejaculation, the lesser is the capacity for it to get a woman pregnant. Hope this helps Regards
