What is sperm freezing?
Sperm freezing is a technique that allows us to preserve male fertility without time limits so that it can be used in the future with assisted reproduction techniques.
Factors like stress, alcohol, tobacco and unhealthy eating are some of the main causes for male infertility.
Thanks to our urologist Ricardo García Navas and our endocrinologist Jesús Tresguerres, we can run a complete fertility study in our clinic in order to identify the source of the problem and offer the best treatment to our patients.
Besides, every step of the sperm freezing process takes place in our clinic, therefore decreasing waiting times and increasing the chances of getting pregnant.
When is it useful?
Why are there men who decide to freeze their sperm?
Other than because of oligoasthenozoospermia (low sperm quality and motility) and for patients who underwent a vasectomy, one of the main reasons men decide to freeze their sperm is fertility preservation before a treatment for cancer since many of the medicines used for chemotherapy and radiotherapy can have a negative impact on the quality of sperm.
Therefore, the solution is to freeze sperm following the right steps in order to use it later on.
