There are a few steps to follow during the procedure of sperm freezing.
STEPS OF SPERM FREEZING
Step 1: Sperm Collection
This process requires a sample to be collected from the male. The sample can be taken in two different ways. First, you can give the sperm in the sperm collection rooms in our clinics by masturbation method. In cases where the number of sperm is not adequate or the patient cannot give sperm by masturbation, the sperm is taken by surgical procedure. MESA, TESA, PESA procedures can be used to collect sperm from the testis. These procedures are performed under local or general anesthesia.
Before giving a sample, you need to have sexual abstinence for 3 days. During this period, the male should not experience any sexual intercourse, and masturbation is prohibited. We do not recommend a prolonged abstinence period. Because, whilst the sperm number increases, the quality decreases dramatically.
Step 2: Sperm Analysis
The collected sperm is analyzed first. In semen analysis; sperm count, mobility and structure are evaluated. This allows selection and freezing of the most healthy sperm.
If the sample is not of the desired quality, your doctor may ask you to provide another sample.
Step 3: Freezing the sperm
After the sperm analysis has been completed, the acquired sperm will be frozen at -197 ° C using a specially formulated sperm freezing fluid. Your sperm is safely protected in liquid nitrogen for many years.
