Egg/Sperm Freezing and Storage

Sperm can be frozen for future use either in artificial insemination or other fertility treatments, or be donated.

Donated sperm has to be stored for six months before it can be used in treatment, in order to screen the donor for infections.

Sperm cells have been frozen and thawed successfully for more than 40 years.

Is sperm freezing and storage for me?

By storing your sperm, you may be able to use them for treatment in the future. You may want to discuss freezing your sperm with your GP or clinician if:
  * you are facing medical treatment that may affect your fertility, for example, some forms of cancer treatment
  * you are about to undergo a vasectomy
  * you have a low sperm count or are producing sperm that are deteriorating in quality over time
  * you have difficulty producing a sample on the day of fertility treatment
  * your sperm is going to be used for donation, in which case freezing allows the sperm to be quarantined for six months.
