The Sperm Freezing Process
RMA of New York – Long Island is proud to offer sperm freezing and storage to patients throughout Nassau and Suffolk Counties. The first step is to have a consultation with one of our fertility specialists as well as a semen analysis. This test evaluates the quantity and quality of sperm to assess male fertility and diagnose potential issues.
For semen analysis, the patient provides a semen sample, either through self-procurement or testicular sperm aspiration or extraction. The semen sample is examined, condensed into a highly concentrated solution, and flash-frozen through a cryopreservation technique known as vitrification. The sample is then stored safely in our Melville, NY facility, ready to be thawed when needed.
