How long does sperm live after ejaculation?

Sperm cells can live up to five days inside the uterus. This means, that they can fertilize the egg for up to five days after ejaculation. Therefore, you do not have to have intercourse or receive artificial insemination on the same day as ovulation to conceive.

If the sperm cells are frozen after ejaculation, they can preserve their ability to fertilize the egg for decades after ejaculation. If you want to read more about sperm freezing, then follow the link.
