Dear Coleguy

Sperm exposed to normal environmental conditions would not survive for very long and would become immotile very quickly, especially in very cold climates. However, in the female genital tract, sperm can survive for as long as three days and therefore has the potential to fertilise an egg even after three days. Yes, both the pre-ejaculate and ejaculate can contain sperm and in fact the initial ejaculate contains the highest concentrate of sperm.
