In average, three days.


The sperm lifespan inside the female body depends entirely on the availability of cervical fluid, which provides the sperm nutrients to live on. The average lifespan of the sperm inside the female body is three days, but in great conditions they can live up to five days - which is why we need to be really careful about the ovulation period and unprotected sex.
