Sperm freezing is done if there is a very low sperm count and motility and there is a risk that sperms may disappear altogether in a short time.
Very few sperm in the ejaculate may not withstand freezing and thawing procedures. So they can be separated and stored by freezing inside the Zonapellucidea (Shell) which was evacuated of its cytoplasm. Sperm freezing is also offered if the husband is having radiation or chemotherapy for malignancy which often results in complete stoppage of sperm production. If the husband has work commitment and cannot spend lot of time during the treatment, then husband’s sperm could be frozen and we could concentrate on the wife’s treatment. This is mostly applicable when the couple come from abroad or from anther state. The doctor will discuss this with you at consultation.
