Hi,

As such when we test sperm in lab outside the human body they tend to loose motility slowly over an hour and die.

So possibly the life of sperm in a condom should be about 1-2 hour. If the condom has spermicidal coating etc it may be less than 1 hour.

I hope this helps

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
