What is the Sperm Freezing process, how is it done, we answer for you.
For sperm freezing, it is necessary to collect a sperm sample from the man. Sperm sample can be collected in two different ways. First, you can give sperm by masturbation method in sperm collection rooms in our clinic. In cases where the sperm count is low or the patient cannot give sperm by masturbation, and no sperm can be found in the ejaculate, the sperm sample is taken by surgical procedure. Sperm can be collected from the testicle with MESA, TESE, TESA, PESA procedures. These procedures are performed under local or general anesthesia.
Before giving sperm, it is necessary to perform sexual abstinence for 3 days. During this time, the man should not have any sexual intercourse or ejaculate through masturbation. It is not right to prolong the abstinence period in order to increase the number of sperm. Because when the time is extended, the number of sperm will increase and sperm motility and quality will decrease.
The collected sperm are analyzed before freezing. In semen analysis; sperm count, motility and structure are evaluated. Thus, it is ensured that the healthiest sperms are selected and frozen.
If the sperm sample taken is not of the desired quality, your doctor may ask you to give a sperm sample once again. After the sperm analysis is completed, the sperm taken are frozen at -197 degrees using specially formulated sperm freezing liquid. Your sperm are safely preserved in liquid nitrogen for many years.
