CatarinaBella521 8 years I said 7 days, I thought it was longer, thanks for the enlightenment dear sugar ;) Miss-K-Smith 8 years wow... 5 days hey... that gives a girl lotsa time to get pregnant DearSugar 8 years Sperm can only live up to 5 days, and that in the best conditions when your cervical mucus is wet, which happens around the time of ovulation. This ideal wet mucus only occurs for about 4-5 days of your cycle, and then you start drying up. Sperm can't live in a dry place so they can only survive for up to 5 days inside a woman's body. söderskär 8 years Yay, I got it right. But I also read somewhere that sometimes they can live from 2 days to up to 6-10 days. So I guess it depends.
