Sperm cryopreservation, commonly referred to as sperm freezing, is a method to preserve sperm for later use. After semen is collected a laboratory analysis is completed and then the sperm are frozen in our state of the art laboratory for future attempts at pregnancy.

Reasons to use sperm freezing include:

  • Unavailable to be present for partner’s fertility treatment (ie- travel, military)
  • Declining sperm concentration
  • Advancing age
  • High risk exposure (ie- zika, occupational)
  • Prior to hormone treatment or gender affirming procedures
  • Prior to cancer treatments
  • Prior to beginning treatment for any medical conditions that could affect fertility

Please note: you must be an active patient at Main Line Fertility to receive care
