Sperm freezing

What is sperm freezing?

Sperm can be frozen and stored for future use. Sperm freezing is the most effective way to preserve male fertility.

Who is it suitable for?

Complete Fertility Centre offers a sperm freezing service for male oncology patients, including under 18s, whose cancer treatment may harm their fertility. For patients who meet these criteria, the NHS funds sperm freezing and storage for up to 10 years.

Screening

All patients must be screened negative for HIV, hepatitis B (core antibody and surface antigen) and hepatitis C at point of referral (search for 'fert' on eQuest and choose the option without rubella).

Appointments

Appointments can usually be accommodated at short notice on weekdays.
