About the treatment

Sperm Preservation is a way to preserve your sperm to be used at a later stage in your life. It is possible for men to cryopreserve one or more sperm samples to preserve their fertility.

Cryopreserved sperm is not altered in quality and the pregnancy results following use of cryopreserved sperm are not less than using fresh sperm of the same quality.

Sperm Preservation treatment is suitable in the following cases:

Patients undergoing IVF or IUI

Male partners of patients undergoing IVF or intrauterine insemination (IUI) who cannot be present to give a fresh sperm sample on the day of their partner’s ovum pick-up or IUI. In this case, their semen can be frozen and thawed for use when required.

Oncology patients

Oncology patients can have semen frozen prior to their chemotherapy or radiation therapy, as these kinds of treatments affect the sperm production and sperm quality. We offer a long-term freezing facility for these patients with an annual storage fee. We also offer repeat semen analysis for these patients after their therapy is completed to review if the frozen sperm is still required or if normal sperm production has resumed.

Surgical removal of testicles

Men that have to undergo surgical removal of their testicles and wish to store sperm for the future.


Men with a varicocele may choose to cryopreserve sperm prior to corrective surgery as back-up in case the surgery delays their normal ability to ejaculate sperm.

Patients undergoing TESA

Freezing of testicular tissue for patients undergoing testicular aspiration (TESA) or tissue biopsy due to azoospermia. The tissue is frozen if motile spermatozoa and/or spermatocytes are visible in the biopsy sample


Men that wish to undergo vasectomy, may choose to freeze sperm for the future as back-up in case they wish to have a child in the future.

Gender change

Men that wish to undergo gender change may choose to freeze sperm in case they wish to use it in the future.
