How long can sperm live inside a woman to get

Q: How long can sperm live inside a woman to get her pregnant?

Doctor

A:   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
