A man may decide to freeze his sperm under these situations:

• He has difficulty producing sperm at any given time.

• The sperm were obtained using a microsurgical technique (such as testicular biopsy), and he wants to avoid having to go through another invasive procedure.

• He is planning to undergo cancer treatment, such as chemotherapy or radiotherapy, which could damage his sperm.

• He may want to donate his sperm for use by other couples.

When sperm is needed, it can be thawed and used for various ART procedures that same day.
