Fertility Preservation Methods for Women & Men
Fertility preservation involves the cryopreservation of sperm or eggs for future use. Fertility preservation is typically done in cases when natural fertility is threatened, such as with ovarian or testicular cancer, or due to aging. Preserved sperm or eggs can be used later in life to achieve pregnancy with the help of in vitro fertilization (IVF) and intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI).

If you are facing a disease that could impact your fertility, such as testicular cancer effects or breast cancer, or are considering some kind of treatment that will threaten future fertility in the near future, you have options.
Egg banking involves the cryopreservation of female eggs for future use. Egg banking includes the collection of eggs from the ovaries via an egg retrieval procedure, dehydrating them, and finally freezing them.
Embryo banking involves the cryopreservation of fertilized female eggs for future use. The entire process includes the collection of eggs from the ovaries, fertilization of eggs with sperm in the laboratory, and then finally, freezing of the embryos for storage.
Emergency Sperm Bank
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.
Egg freezing, or oocyte cryopreservation, essentially preserves your fertility at its current state — allowing you greater control over your journey toward motherhood. With the latest technology, women can work around their biological clock, whether its for personal or professional reasons.
