and saving sperms, it is possible to preserve
fertility, in the event of an external factor that may affect the man's
infertility. If you wish to freeze sperms due to a serious illness, for example
cancer, which is being treated via the county council, you will receive help
through Karolinska, read more here. A fertility investigation includes a sperm analysis as part of the
investigation together with your partner. If you do
not want an investigation to be carried out, but
want to have an analysis done yourself, this is also possible, but then you
will have to finance the analysis yourself. The investigation will be the same
as described below.
The process involved in sperm freezing
appointment If you want to freeze your sperms, you first need to
see a doctor who will go through the process with you. The doctor will ask you,
among other things, about your medications and any diseases you could have that
could affect the sample. You will also have to provide blood samples to rule
out that you are carrying a contagious viral disease, such as hepatitis and
HIV. You will also receive information about what to consider before providing
a sample of your sperm. It is possible to provide a sample at the clinic or for
you to take a container home with you, and then submit a sample.
test/freezing You provide a sample at the start to see if freezing
is possible, and if the quality is good, your sperms will be frozen
immediately. The doctor you are seeing will then notify you of the results. The
main focus is on your sperm count, their motility and volume. Should there be
no sperm in the ejaculate or the sample does not comply with the freezing
criteria, further investigations can be carried out, see PESA/TESA.
