It would depend on what phase your are in on your cycle, If you are in the most fertile part of your cycle then it could be up to 3 to 5 days.  This also means that the man needs to be in good condition

Generally, during your fertile time, sperm live about 3 days, and sometimes 5 if they can get into the cervix.  Some research also says that if conditions are absolutely perfect, they can live up to 7 days.  This is rare.  When you are not fertile, they generally only live a few hours since the vagina is normally acidic and sperm need an alkaline environment to survive.  Semen, menstrual fluids, and fertile cervical mucus all provide a better environment for the sperm since they are all alkaline fluids.

Do this DNA test will help her  ?No saples are taken so far.
