The Benefits of Sperm Freezing & Cryopreservation

Sperm banking involves the cryopreservation of sperm for future use. Sperm can remain frozen for many years, or even decades. When you’re ready to become a parent, the frozen sperm will be thawed and used to inseminate a female egg via IVF to achieve pregnancy.

Emergency sperm banking is helpful for men who are preparing to receive medical treatment that may affect their fertility. At Atlantic Reproductive, we offer sperm cryopreservation services for male patients who are preparing to undergo:

  • Chemotherapy
  • Radiation
  • Testicular removal

Banking sperm before undergoing these forms of treatment allows men to preserve their ability to reproduce and grow their families, even after experiencing adverse health conditions.

Sperm Bank FAQs

  1. How long can frozen sperm last? There is no exact limit or “expiration date” on frozen sperm; there are examples of successful inseminations being performed with sperm that had been in storage for well over a decade.
  2. How is the sperm obtained? A specimen is acquired at the Atlantic Reproductive fertility clinic in Raleigh, NC. Collection is made in a private and comfortable setting.
  3. Is sperm harmed during the cryopreservation process? Not all sperm survives the freezing and eventual thawing process, but, in most cases, around 50% will remain to be used as a part of in vitro fertilization or ICSI.
