How long does sperm live inside a female body?
Telling exactly the duration is not possible because, it depends on the environment that sperms are released into and how quickly the fluid surrounding the sperms dry up.
Typically, sperms live in female body for about 5 days after ejaculation. How do they survive for so long? A Woman’s reproductive tract provides sperms with all the required nutrients for their survival.
I withdrew my penis before ejaculation, will the woman still get pregnant?
This is also called ‘Withdrawal Method’. This is highly unreliable. Reason is very simple, there is something called ‘pre-cum’ that happens most of the times. May look like just water (than actual semen) but it may contain few sperms in it which can lead to fertilization.
However, the chances are very less. If the withdrawal is done correctly all the time, chances of getting the woman pregnant drops to 4% only.
Ejaculated in Hot tub, how long does your sperm survive in there?
In hot tub or in a hot environment, sperms don’t live for very long at all. May be for a few seconds and then they die due to the chemicals present in the water and due to the heat of the water.
If the water in the tub is warm, then sperms may survive for few minutes. If the intercourse is done inside the hot tub and the sperm is ejaculated in the vagina of the woman, sperms will live as long as they do during normal intercourse.
How long can a frozen sperm survive?

How long does it take a man’s body to manufacture Sperms?
