Sperm Freezing

Sperm freezing and storage in iVF Riga Reproductive tissue bank

iVF Riga clinic opened the first official Reproductive tissue bank in the Baltic States, which provides freezing and storage of eggs and sperm for the patients. According to the legislation of Latvia, the period of storage of the patient's genetic material is 10 years.

Medical reasons:

  • Bad semen analysis. Sperm cryopreservation makes it possible to collect material in several times and to accumulate the required semen amount for artificial insemination program.
  • Fertility preservation for oncology patients, since the process of sperm production stops using chemotherapy and radiotherapy.
  • Premature testicular tissue exhaustion.
  • Expected male urogenital surgery.
  • Unfavorable social and professional factors that affect reproductive health: harmful production, emotional exhaustion (burnout syndrome)…

Such patients are recommended to freeze their sperm before starting therapy.

Social reasons:

  • This is an excellent opportunity for those who are not yet ready to start a family, who wants to make a career or finish their studies at a university.
  • In cases where a proper partner for joint life has not yet been found. Modern technology allows to use the sperm fully after thawing, keeping its quality at the same level.
  • You have an opportunity to take sperm freezing procedure during the first appointment in our clinic, which will help to save your time and to reduce amount of visits (sperm can be used during the treatment of infertility at the right time without your presence).
