Sperm Storage Services
Where can I freeze my sperm? Why should I freeze my sperm? Is sperm storage possible in my unique circumstances?
These are some of the most common questions we get from people looking into cryopreservation. We are here to give you the answers you need to make the right decision for you and your family.
Why consider sperm storage?
There are many reasons people consider cryopreservation of their sperm.
To overcome the risk of infertility due to cancer-related therapies
Before you or your loved one begins cancer treatment, ask your doctor about the risks of sterility.
Treatments like surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation may impact your fertility. Opting for sperm storage prior to or in the early stages of treatment offer peace of mind that your journey to biological parenthood is preserved.
When stored properly, cryopreserved specimens remain viable for an indefinite period. Sperm stored for 20 years prior to thawing have resulted in pregnancies, so even if you don’t want children in the near future, sperm storage is still an option.
Here at Fairfax Cryobank, we understand that you need to begin cancer treatment as soon as possible. We reserve appointment times for oncology patients every morning.
We are also proud to offer a Sperm Banking Kit: Priority Male™. This overnight collection kit gives men the opportunity to cryopreserve their semen specimens before medical treatment, even if they are unable to travel to a sperm bank.
To preserve reproductive capability following surgery
If you are scheduled to undergo testicular, prostate, or similar surgery, our easy, effective semen storage process can help protect your reproductive capability.
To get peace of mind prior to a vasectomy
Vasectomy is a popular method of birth control, but it can be difficult to reverse. Banking your sperm before this procedure gives you peace of mind that, if your circumstances change in the future, you can still satisfy your fertility needs.
To prepare for assisted reproductive technology procedures
Storing semen prior to IVF, GIFT, ICSI, or a similar procedure ensures the specimen is readily available.
To preserve fertility before hormone treatment
For MTF trans patients, banking specimens before hormone treatment preserves future fertility options.
To help oligozoospermia patients
If you have oligozoospermia – that is, a low sperm concentration – sperm storage can be an effective treatment. We concentrate and cryopreserve semen specimens before storage. The specimens are then pooled by the physician to increase the probability of pregnancy.
To overcome other challenges or high-risk circumstances
Many occupations put men at risk of inuring their reproductive system, including:
- Those working with environmental pollutants
- Those working in X-ray or nuclear environments
- Those prone to falls and injuries, such as firemen, policemen, and construction workers
- Hockey, soccer, basketball, and football players
Men in military service may also be at a higher risk of injury. That’s why we offer a Special Program for Active Duty Military: the first year of sperm storage is free. Find out more by contacting our customer service team.
