Who should be freezing their sperm?
Sperm freezing acts as an insurance policy to ensure your sperm is healthy and viable when you need to use it. Freezing sperm should be available to all men, and in particular, men who may be undergoing chemotherapy, cancer treatment, in high risk jobs, military, or those undergoing gender confirmation surgery.
I’m considering hormones or gender-reassignment, is Dadi right for me?
Before gender reassignment surgery, even if individuals have been on hormone treatment for a period of time, it is certainly prudent to perform a semen analysis, as individuals will still have sperm. If there is sperm, freezing the sperm is a very reasonable option, as with continued hormone exposure, production could decline. Even if there are no sperm, there are still options, and we encourage speaking to a physician about other steps that make sense.
