Article topic: How long does the sperm in the external environment

The answer of the doctor-doctor: Hello, Natalia! Sperm are virtually not survive in the external environment. In addition, for natural fertilization need certain indicators of sperm: volume, number (tens of million, good morphology and motility). Use the collected sperm for conception just does not make sense, especially against the will of the owner of the semen. In addition, if you approach the planning of a child is reasonably necessary to first perform a semen analysis. I wish you health.
