Canterbury DHB


Information for Health Care Team

Fertility Associates offers a freezing and long-term storage facility for patients from Haematology or Oncology. In many cases, the sperm of these patients will already be of lower than normal quality and will not freeze well, but even if the frozen semen is not suitable for normal vaginal insemination it may be possible to concentrate and wash it for intrauterine insemination or even IVF. It is preferable, if time permits, to bank more than one sample.
