How long can sperm live inside a woman to get

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

 

 

Doctor: HelloThanks 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 helpsRegards
