Dr. Mohit Saraogi, a renowned fertility specialist in Mumbai, highlights the critical role of sperm banking for men undergoing cancer treatments or facing other threats to fertility. He emphasizes the significance of preserving fertility options through sperm banking, especially when men face emotional and physical challenges.
He refers to the men diagnosed with cancer or a severe medical condition that requires them to undergo chemotherapy, radiation, or surgery as a necessary treatment and is likely to affect their reproductive health. Hence, he suggests they should preserve their sperm in a sperm bank before beginning the treatment. These sperms can be used when they are willing to proceed with fatherhood in the future.
Dr. Mohit Saraogi, Director of Saraogi Hospital, IVF Centre in Mumbai, has been dedicated to helping individuals and couples achieve their dream of parenthood for over a decade. He has 13+ years of experience as an obstetrician, gynecologist, and infertility specialist. An expert in assisted reproductive technologies, Dr. Saraogi, recommends fertility preservation options to patients who need the same and help them realize their dream of becoming parents.
“Facing cancer or other medical conditions that require treatments like chemotherapy, radiation, or surgery can pose unexpected obstacles to men’s reproductive health. Fertility concerns often emerge during these challenging times.
Sperm banking offers a potential solution to overcome fertility concerns that emerge during challenging times after being diagnosed with cancer or critical medical conditions,” says Dr. Mohit Saraogi, an IVF specialist distinguished specialist in reproductive medicine.
Sperm banking is where men can store and preserve their sperm for future use and safeguard their fertility options. Dr. Saraogi emphasizes that men can proceed with their treatment with the reassurance of the fertility factor, focusing on their medical treatment and improving their health.
Other reasons for proceeding with storing the sperm include various reasons that could delay their parenthood, such as the age factor, low sperm count, vasectomy, and frequent travelling, which could interfere with the ovulation cycle or the IVF procedure. Men who wish to store their sperm before they grow older or proceed with vasectomy but want to use their sperm in the future.
Once the sperm is collected, it is labelled, treated with a special liquid and preserved under controlled temperature. The sperm is stored in a particular deep freezer storage unit that contains liquid nitrogen whose temperature is -196 degree Celsius.
He also mentions multiple advantages of sperm preservation, mainly the storage of healthy sperm. Also, cryopreservation of sperm does not affect its quality. Normal and healthy babies are born using cryopreserved sperms. If correct storage procedures are followed, the sperms retain their efficiency, even after a long storage period.
Dr. Mohit Saraogi shares a patient testimony of a 32 YO male cancer survivor who proceeded with sperm banking. The patient stated, ‘ I had total peace of mind during the cancer treatment and knew that I could start a family after recovering from cancer. I am very grateful to Dr. Mohit Saraogi and his team for recommending this option to me and for their unconditional support.
