What is Sperm Cryopreservation?

Heading

Sperm is frozen and stored throughout the male fertility preservation technique so that it can be used in future assisted reproductive technologies.

What is the purpose of freezing sperm?

Sperm cells can be preserved by a procedure called sperm cryopreservation. Another name for it is sperm freezing. Semen can be preserved successfully for a number of years after cryopreservation.To count sperm cells and determine whether they are healthy, sperm sample are obtained and examined under a microscope. These sperm cells are subsequently vitrified or frozen using a rapid freezing process, and kept for later use. Thin tubes called ampoules are used for storage depending on the amount available.In order to use sperm to fertilise the eggs, one or more ampoules can be thawed (warmed to room temperature) when the person is prepared to become pregnant with his wife or partner.

What does freezing testicular tissue mean?

When testicular tissue is extracted surgically and frozen for later use, the term "testicular tissue freezing" is used. Sperm can be extracted from the tissue by thawing it later.

The Takeaway

If a man is at risk of losing his fertility for any reason, he can maintain it by freezing and storing his sperm in advance. Additionally, whether they choose to donate sperm. For individuals with the ability to ejaculate, the procedure is simple. But testicular tissue cryopreservation offers some hope for the future for young boys or those who are unable to ejaculate. There have been no human live births with this method as of yet, hence it is still considered an experimental therapy.
