Storing your sperm may enable you to use them for treatment in the future. You may want to consider freezing your sperm if:
- you are about to have a vasectomy
- you have difficulty producing a sample on the day of fertility treatment
- you have a condition, or are facing medical treatment for a condition, that may affect your fertility (for example if you are undergoing chemotherapy for cancer)
- Before you agree to the freezing and storage of your sperm, your clinician will explain the process involved.
- You will be screened for infectious diseases, including HIV and hepatitis B and C.
- You will need to give written consent for your sperm to be stored.
- At the clinic, you produce a fresh sample of sperm.
- The sperm are frozen and then stored in a storage tank containing liquid nitrogen.
When you first freeze your sperm, the clinic will ask you to fill out consent forms.
The forms allow you to specify:
- how long you want to store your sperm (the standard storage period is 1 to 2 years)
- whether your sperm can be used in research or donated for use in someone else’s treatment
