Semen Banking

Semen Banking

Semen banking is the most successful and tried method of preserving and storing a man’s fertility, so that he can try and have children later in life.

What is Semen Banking?

Those men who wants to freeze their sperm for use in their own future treatment or to donate to someone else’s treatment. These donated sperm usually must be stored for six months first in order to screen the donor for infections.

Is semen banking right for me?

You may want to consider freezing your sperm:

  • If you have a condition, or are facing medical treatment for a condition that may affect your fertility.
  • If you are about to have a vasectomy and want sperm available in case, you change your mind about having (more) children.
  • If you have a low sperm count or the quality of your sperm is deteriorating.
  • If you have difficulty producing a sperm sample on the day of fertility treatment.
  • If you are at risk of injury or death (for example, you’re a member of the Armed Forces who is being deployed to a war zone).

How does Semen banking work?

In this procedure, your sperm will be first tested for any infectious diseases like HIV and Hepatitis. This has no bearing on whether you can freeze your sperm or not but is to ensure that the affected sperm samples are stored separately in order to prevent any contamination of other samples.

You would then give in writing, your consent about your sperm being stored and you must also specify for how long you would want it to be stored for in the future.
