Sperm freezing & male fertility preservation

If you are diagnosed with a cancer where the recommended treatment may affect sperm quality or production, you may wish to consider sperm freezing in order to preserve your chance of having a family in the future when you are well again.

It is important to discuss this with your cancer specialist, who may refer you directly to the Andrology Unit at The Royal Women’s Hospital or Nairobi IVF, or to a fertility specialist, depending on the urgency of your situation.

Both chemotherapy and radiotherapy may affect sperm production. The effect may be temporary or permanent. Once your treatment begins, it may be too late to collect and preserve your sperm.
