Answer: Hi, There is no absolute way of knowing without doing a DNA test on the baby when it is born. It is possible for sperm to live for up to five days in the cervical mucous so technically, either man could be the biological father of the baby. You will need to speak with your maternity care provider about your concerns. It may also be useful for you to speak with a counsellor about the best way of discussing this issue with both of the men involved. Cheers Jane
