Sperm Banking: A Comprehensive Guide to Preserving Fertility

Tipo de empleo: Otros

Sperm banking, also known as semen freezing or sperm cryopreservation, is a procedure that involves the collection, freezing, and storage of sperm. This process allows individuals to preserve their fertility for future use, providing an opportunity to conceive through treatments such as intrauterine insemination (IUI) or in vitro fertilization (IVF). At Avisa IVF & Fertility Center, we offer a comprehensive approach to sperm banking, ensuring that our clients have the best chance of achieving their family-building goals. 


The Importance of Sperm Banking 

Sperm banking is a valuable option for individuals facing circumstances that may affect their fertility. This includes those undergoing cancer treatment, surgeries that may impact reproductive organs, or those with jobs that expose them to hazardous conditions. Additionally, it is a solution for those who wish to delay parenthood but are concerned about the natural decline in fertility with age. 


The Process of Sperm Banking 

The sperm banking process at Avisa IVF & Fertility Center involves several steps: 

Screening for Infectious Diseases: To ensure the safety of the stored sperm, individuals undergo a screening for sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). This typically involves a simple blood test. 


Semen Collection: The next step is to provide a semen sample. The most common method is through masturbation in a private room at our fertility clinic. However, in some cases, a sample can be produced at home and transported to the laboratory within a specified time frame. 


Semen Analysis: Before freezing, the semen sample is analyzed to assess sperm count, motility, and overall health. This information is crucial for determining the best course of treatment in the future. 


Freezing and Storage: The semen is mixed with a cryoprotectant solution to protect the sperm during freezing. It is then stored in liquid nitrogen at extremely low temperatures. This preserves the sperm's viability for future use. 


Thawing and Use: When the individual is ready to use the stored sperm, it is thawed and prepared for fertility treatments such as IUI or IVF. The success rates of these treatments with thawed sperm are comparable to those using fresh sperm. 


The Egg Freezing Process: Preserving Female Fertility 

In addition to sperm banking, Avisa IVF & Fertility Center also offers the egg freezing process for women looking to preserve their fertility. This process involves stimulating the ovaries to produce multiple eggs, retrieving the eggs, and then freezing them for future use. Egg freezing is an excellent option for women who wish to delay childbearing or who need to undergo medical treatments that may affect their fertility. 



Sperm banking is a valuable resource for individuals looking to preserve their fertility and expand their family-building options in the future. At Avisa IVF & Fertility Center, we are committed to providing our clients with the highest quality care and support throughout the sperm banking and egg freezing process. Whether you are facing medical treatments, career commitments, or simply wish to plan for the future, our team is here to help you on your journey to parenthood.
