What are the real facts about sperm health and its lifespan?

Generally, sperm cells cannot survive outside of the body when exposed to the air for a long time. How long the sperms can survive depends upon the environment that they are released into and how rapidly the fluid can dry up because of the surrounding. The infertility specialists in Hyderabad, who are working in the Motherhood fertility centre, the renowned top test tube baby center in Hyderabad doing male factor infertility diagnosis and found the real facts about sperm cells. About their health and lifespan.

The lifespan of the sperm inside the female body:

The infertility specialists, while finding causes of male infertility, they have shown that after ejaculation, the sperm cells can live inside the female body for near about 5 days. The fluid present in the reproductive tract of a woman has all the necessary nutrients those the sperm cells need for their survival during these 5 days’ time.

Once the sperms reach the female reproductive tract, then they swim through the cervix into the uterus to reach the fallopian tubes and female is a very long journey for the sperms and very few sperms can survive in this long journey.

The lifespan of sperms in a hot tub:

Sperm cells can’t survive in the hot tub for a long time. They can’t survive more than a few seconds after being exposed to the chemicals and hot water. If you are having a warm bath that was not so hot, the sperm cells can survive for only a couple of minutes. But it is very rare that the sperm cells would find their own way through the warm water into the vagina of a female. In this way, the occurrence of pregnancy is very difficult, like impossible.

But, if a couple was having intercourse in the water, the sperms can directly enter into the female reproductive tract. And pregnancy can happen. The outside temperature and environmental effects would not have that much impact on the survival of the sperms.

The lifespan of sperm if frozen:

The infertility specialists in Hyderabad working for male factor infertility treatment believe that the sperm cells can survive indefinitely if they are frozen, till the temperature remains stable. At very low temperature like (-196° C,) the sperm cells are just like in suspended animation, that means all of the necessary functions have completely stopped.

While investigating the causes of male infertility, the infertility specialist in Hyderabad found that the freezing sperms would allow a man to have children even if he lost his fertility capability because of cancer or any other treatment.
