Sperm Freezing

Sperm freezing, or cryobanking, is a great technology that can enhance and preserve a couple's fertility.  Indications for banking include:
Fertility preservation prior to cancer therapy
Fertility preservation for men with severe oligopermia--low sperm counts. 
Prior to elective vasectomy
During and after vasectomy reversal
After sperm extraction procedures: TESE, PESA, MESA

Sperm can remain viable once frozen for an indefinite period.
