Sperm Banking

Sperm banking might be considered as a reasonable alternative to vasectomy reversal in the unlikely event that the individual wishes to father children in the future in a patient considering a vasectomy.

Stored sperm can be used for many fertility procedures including IVF (in vitro fertilization), ICSI (Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection), and IUI (Intrauterine Insemination). Which procedure is right for you will depend on many factors including: the number of sperm cells in each vial stored, the number of vials you're storing, the fertility of your partner, your budget, and the number of children you want. You can chat with our fertility lab experts for free to get a recommendation based off your circumstances.

Cost of semen analysis/storage for 5 years: $889

Summary

While vasectomy reversal success rates are good, reversals don't always result in sperm return to the semen. Cryopreservation (preservation by freezing) of semen before a vasectomy can alleviate concerns about the permanency of vasectomy and the possibility of reversal failure.  While most vasectomy candidates will never use their stored sperm, they may get as much peace of mind from knowing "it's there" as they do from any other insurance policy.
