Our team can help you learn why men freeze sperm for fertility preservation
The Fertility Center of Las Vegas (FCLV) exists to help patients achieve their family-building goals. Sometimes, this means providing fertility treatments to help hopeful parents overcome infertility. In other cases, our Las Vegas fertility clinic supports patients who are seeking fertility preservation options like sperm freezing. Read on to find out why men freeze sperm and which patients can make good sperm freezing candidates.
Learn why men freeze sperm
Each patient has their own reasons for freezing their sperm, and all these reasons are valid. As a result, our Las Vegas fertility clinic finds there are many reasons why men freeze sperm.
- The desire to postpone fatherhood
- In preparation for cancer treatments
- Medical reasons unrelated to cancer
- A safety net before a vasectomy
- Before beginning the journey to medically transition
- Before deployment
- As a proactive measure when working in a high-risk occupation
These are just a few of the reasons why men freeze sperm and examples of some types of patients who make good sperm freezing candidates.
Find out what sperm freezing involves
If you’re interested in sperm freezing and think you could be a good candidate, our Las Vegas fertility clinic is here to support you. To start, one of our doctors will order a semen analysis. This test can help you and your doctor learn about your sperm count and sperm quality.
If you have a high enough sperm count and enough high-quality sperm, your doctor will ask you to provide a semen sample. You will do so by masturbating into a sterile collection container. If you are unable to masturbate for religious reasons, we can provide a special condom for semen collection.
After you collect your sample and bring it to our clinic, andrologists in the lab will prepare the sample and freeze it. Your frozen sperm can then go into frozen storage for as long as you need.
