Store Sperm

Store your sperm now for long-term storage and future use.

Sperm storage, also referred to as sperm cryopreservation or sperm banking, are all terms used to define fertility preservation or male gametes: Sperm. Sperm is collected for cryopreservation, commonly by providing a sperm sample through the act of masturbation. The semen specimen is then prepped and placed in cryovials and then stored in liquid nitrogen-filled tanks. These liquid nitrogen tanks are extremely cold and suspend all metabolic processes. Cryopreservation has been proven to be an effective way to preserve sperm, and when combined with the proper storage and shipping protocols, sperm can be preserved indefinitely. This provides many with peace of mind that they are able to have long-term storage for their sample, and peace of mind that can preserve their fertility for future fertilization using assisted reproductive technologies.  Commonly known assisted reproductive technologies or ART include intracytoplasmic sperm injection ICSI, In Vitro Fertilization IVF, and Intrauterine Insemination IUI. Prior to sperm banking, it’s important to note that an individual should have a semen analysis to get an understanding of sperm parameters like sperm count and sperm quality. It’s important to understand sperm count and quality prior to sperm cells being frozen.

Many choose to store their sperm, especially if they are about to undergo medical treatments that can render individuals infertile as sperm storage is a way to preserve fertility. For example, a large group of sperm storage users is patients who are undergoing cancer treatment and choose to freeze and store their sperm prior to cancer treatments. In addition to medical treatments, many men choose to store their sperm if they work in a dangerous job or are getting older. Another common reason why individuals store their sperm is for peace of mind in the event they are getting a vasectomy. Whatever the reason, sperm banking allows individuals to store their sperm and preserve their fertility, allowing them optionality for future fertilization using fertility treatments like in vitro fertilization IVF.

Dadi is the leading male fertility service that allows individuals to deposit a semen sample at home, versus depositing a sperm specimen at a clinic or sperm bank. Fertility services like sperm banking have traditionally been very expensive, and the cost was prohibitive to many individuals—especially to those looking for long-term sperm storage.
