Sperm cryopreservation

Sperm cryopreservation Clinic Alternatyva

Semen freezing (cryopreservation) in Lviv

The idea of ​​freezing ejaculate originated in Montaguez from Italy in the 18th century, who conducted successful experiments with animal sperm, freezing to –15 ° C. He also proposed to create a cryobank of sperm of soldiers who participated in dangerous battles. But at that time society was not ready for such innovative projects!
In 1954, the first baby was born after using cryopreserved sperm, and the first sperm banks were created in 1965 in the US and Japan.

At present, the only certified sperm bank in Kharkiv operates in Ukraine, and our clinic receives sperm and selects donors for infertility treatment programs based on anthropometric and phenotypic data only from that bank.

If necessary, cryopreservation of fresh semen (for example, obtained after puncture from testicular tissue (TESA) or in case of oncopathologies before chemotherapy or before performing hazardous work), is frozen with the method of classical freezing in liquid nitrogen. In this condition, it is recommended to store semen for up to 10 years. Although, in 2002 a healthy baby was born after using frozen semen for 21 years!
