It is recommended that sperm samples be cryopreserved prior to treatment, surgery, and/or exposure to chemical, biological, or environmental hazards for the best quality sample. Potential future uses of cryopreserved specimens include IUI, IVF, ICSI, and other ART-related procedures. Please note that quality of the sample post thaw will most likely dictate which procedure(s) can potentially be used. See FAQ for details.
See Sperm Cryopreservation Information for a history of cryopreservation and additional details.
