How long can sperm live inside a woman to get her pregnant?

Hello this is Dr. Salama MD,

If the sperm can make it past the uterus into the fallopian tubes using fertile cervical fluid channels, they can live there, waiting for the release of an egg, for up to five days.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

If not, please don't forget to leave a positive rating as that's the only way I get credit for answering your question.

Thank you!

It's possible but not likely that it was the guy on day 10.

More likely to be the guy on day 16.
