Doctor :   This is a contentious issues, put forth differently by different forensic experts.
User :   so your ddtail anser is , that the sperm inside the dead body would stay alive for 24 hrs , if the body temperature is around him is just below normal human temperature , means 30 to 36 centigrades . And there is not other way that the sperm would stay alive for 24 hrs at any other temperature inside the dead body ?

User :   what the diferent expert view says , if you give me of atleast 3 expert`s vies ?
Doctor :   At temperatures which are very low, like freezing and below zero degrees there have been instances where the sperms have been extracted.
User :   what that means ?
User :   for how long it stay alive if the temperature in 20 , 10 or 5 centigrades ?
User :   imean inside the dead body
User :   ?
User :   you mean below 0 degrees the spersm stay alive in dead body for 24 hrs ?
User :   spersm= sperm
Doctor :   For frozen bodies in some sudden scenarios like it reaches -20 degrees it remains which can be used after many years.
Doctor :   * it remains alive which can be used after many years.
User :   you mean at -10 or -20 degrees , the sperm stay alive for 24 hrs in a dead body and then it can be extracted to be preserve ?
Doctor :   For your question of 20,10,5 in dead bodies , if you require the exact time then I have to take an expert opinion from a CRYOLOGIST or Forensic expert.
User :   but you were saying it would stay alive for 24 hrs , only if the temperature around the dead body is just below the normal body temperature , and you said , 30 degrees .
Doctor :   Yeah, but only a few centers across the globe have these facilities for research.
Doctor :   If you want a detailed reply we can send you by a mail.
Doctor :   Bye for now.
