Transitioning can be an exciting time in your life, and CryoChoice would like to help you along this journey.
For some transfeminine individuals going through the transition phase, hormones play an important role in this process. However, some hormones can permanently alter your body, which could stop or change your sperm production. In hindsight, hormones could make it impossible to produce your own biological children in the future, and this is where CryoChoice is here to help.
If you identify as transfeminine, or you are in the process of transitioning, private sperm banking may be an option for you. Preserving your sperm could give you the opportunity to have your own biological children in the future. You can preserve your sperm any time after puberty, which is generally between 12 and 13 years of age.
Because hormones can greatly impact your body’s sperm production, it is highly recommended that your sample is collected before any hormones have been consumed; producing a sample after you have begun taking hormones could give you little to no sperm cells to save.
At this time, insurance companies do not cover the cost of private sperm banking; however, CryoChoice offers payment plans to assist with the cost of the collection and storage.
