Re: How Long Does Sperm Stay Alive in the Female Body?

You may want to search the web for accurate scientific, medical information on this point, but I think a good rule of thumb is around 24 hours. Though it is possible, not common, but possible, for sperm to live as long as 4 days. that's why natural family planning has a higher instance of birth defects than other forms of birth control because other forms don't allow the sperm and the egg to hang around, but whe the sperm is old and fertalizes the egg, the chance for birth defects goes up.
