Requests for Sperm and Egg Freezing on the Rise
The San Diego Fertility Center has received an increased number of inquiries about sperm freezing from servicemen considering cryopreservation before deploying. Some want to ensure that wives won’t have to interrupt fertility treatment. Others are concerned about how vaccinations and medication or even biological or chemical weapons could affect their sperm. Most inquiries are about sperm banking and sperm gender selection which the Center refers to the Fertility Center of California Sperm Bank Inc. in San Diego. Sperm banking has a long history of serving men with cancer, many of whom preserve their sperm before undergoing chemotherapy that can leave them sterile.
