We perform cryopreservation for you to preserve fertility, by freezing and storing embryos, eggs and sperm for use in the future. A vital component of any successful fertility programme,Srushti has had an excellent track record with Cryopreservation since 2000.
Cryopreservation can be a difficult decision to make for some couples. However, it truly is a viable means to preserve fertility and have a biological child. It can also help other couples experience the joy of parenthood, through the donation of embryos, eggs and sperms.
Sperm Freezing via cryopreservation enables you to preserve your sperm for an indefinite period of time, and thereby preserve your fertility. The cryopreservation does not affect the quality of the sperm in any way, and can be successfully used for artificial insemination with the same degree of success as freshly collected ejaculate.
If you have decided to go ahead with the sperm cryopreservation procedure, you would need to abstain from sex or ejaculation for 2 -3 days prior to your appointment to maximise your sperm count.
At Srushti, we recommend that you produce your sample by masturbation in our semen collection room at the hospital, so that our embryologists can prepare and freeze it as soon as possible.
Please do not use a lubricant as this can damage your sperm, and make sure that you collect all of the semen, as the first portion often contains the most sperm.
The prepared semen is stored in straws in liquid nitrogen in our special cryogenic tank. You can opt to use the sample at any time, even after several years. You can decide for how long you want to store your sample and extend the period by paying annual storage fees.
Some of the sperm are killed during the freezing process, but many usually survive and can be used successfully even after being stored for several years.
