Cryopreservation of seminal liquid is carried out in our Cantonal Fertility Centre.
The sperm bank service is offered to:
- Patients that must undergo surgical operations on their genitalia, or radiant therapy or chemotherapy that could permanently or temporarily compromise their fertility. In these cases, the deposit can be maintained indefinitely.
- Persons that need to preserve a seminal liquid deposit before medically-assisted procreation treatments. In this case the deposit can’t be stored for more than 5 years.
- Persons that for personal private reasons or before undergoing vasectomy have the need to preserve a deposit of their sperm. In these cases, the deposit can be maintained for only five-years.
The sperm bank collects and preserves donor sperm for use in assisted procreation treatments.
