how long is semen alive when its been ejaculated.

It depends on the location. In the vagina, sperm cells may last as long as a couple of days. They may die within hours elsewhere. WhatamIdoing (talk) 22:43, 10 March 2010 (UTC)
The acidic environment of the vagina will kill sperm very quickly, however, in cervical mucus sperm can survive for several days. Lots of cervical mucus is produced at the time of ovulation and may act as a reservoir for sperm.Ekem (talk) 03:56, 18 June 2010 (UTC)
