What is Semen Banking?
A sperm bank is also referred to as a Cryobank that offers a facility to collect, freeze, and store human sperm. The procured samples of sperm at a sperm bank are either donated by male partners who want to preserve their sperms for future use or by couples seeking sperm donations for IVF or other artificial insemination procedures. The basic purpose of semen banking or cryopreserving semen is to ensure the possibility of pregnancy in the future. It is particularly beneficial for those males who have gained advanced reproductive age, and are involved in some hazardous occupation or will undergo major surgery having a life risk or permanent sterilization or genetic damage.
