Welcome to ehealthforum,
Sperms can survive in warm and moist environment for hours. Once inside the female genital tract, they can stay alive for 3-4 days. The saliva in mouth does not harm them, and they can stay alive for hours. The baby born as a result of ‘self-insemination’ is usually healthy and with no reported problems (you should be careful though about your husband’s feelings and responsibilities and legal issues that might arise due to this). For further details and to rule out any fertility issues visit your doctor/gynecologist.
Take care.
