Doctor insights on:
No difference that I know.
However, "common sense" wise, fresh may be better than frozen.
Most docs will agree that there is no significant difference, otherwise they would tell. ...Read more
Freezing is to mean turning liquid into solid form by lowering the temperature. Water begins to freeze at 32 degree f or 0 degree celsius. Freezing reduces the movement of the substance/object--solid. Also commonly used in daily communication--police says to a perpetraitor "freeze" and hopefully the bad boy/girl stays solid/still (just for fun :-)). Have ...Read more
Can sperm be frozen to be used with frozen eggs (w/o fertilizing an egg before egg is frozen)? If so, can frozen sperm be shipped for storage w/ egg?
What is artificial insemination, how much is it successful and how much time a frozen sperm can be alive?
IUI: Nowadays artificial insemination isuallyrefers to intrauterine insemination. This is where the sperm specimen is washed then placed into a catheter and this catheter is carefully placed at the very top of the uterus where approximately a half a cc of the sperm and culture media combination is deposited. Pregnancy rate if all is as normal as can be ranges between 15 to 20% per attempt. ...Read more
Frozen sperm. Fresh eggs. Both proven donors. Nulligravid 42 yo woman. Odds of conception after et with 3?
The odds are excellent as long as all other aspects of your workup have been negative. Pregnancy rate with 2 embryos can give a 70% chance.
Replacing 3 embryos in this situation would not be suggested as long as the egg donor was 21-28. Most donors are not accepted over 30. The risk of triplets is quite high and would cause significant obstetrical issues such as prematurity, decreased fetal size.. ...Read more
Is it true that women who inseminate with frozen vs fresh sperm have a higher chance of having boys?
If freeze my sperm before vasectomy, what needs be done in the event I want to have a child, not consider reverse vasectomy, talk about sperm frozen?
Yes you sperm can be preserved in cryogenic lab (sperm bank) for decades for a fee. Reported over 20 yrs later
of course you can freeze at home, you have to engage the service of a cryogenic lab (sperm bank) for a fee reported fertilization occurred 20 yrs later. It is not going to be cheap, your insurance will not cover for this kin

Need testing: If you low sperm count, you need an evaluation to determine the cause. It may be a hormonal problem, obstruction, or failure of the testicles to make sperm. Routine blood tests will help identify the cause. ...Read more
Sperm death: Well, this is got to be one of the more unusual questions here. I'm wondering in what context you want to know. Sperm, like any living tissue requires some sort of "food or energy" to survive. We also have to remain in some form of solution and not dry out. There are formulas and chemicals that can kill sperm. Here's something you can read. Http://en. Wikipedia. Org/wiki/spermicide. ...Read more
Under microscopy.: A semen sample is first prepared for microscopic analysis and then loaded into a chamber called a hemocytometer. Variations of this device are also used for blood cell counts. The device has a grid, and the number of spermatozoa in each grid is counted. Based on these counts, the total number of sperm can be calculated. ...Read more
Yes: Sperm is primarily made from protein with a little sugar and salt. It is not harmful when ingested, although their have been individual reports of some allergic type reaction. Some alternative medicine sites suggest health benefits, although these claims may be more humorous than serious in nature. Some diseases can also be shared with eating sperm. ...Read more
You can't: There is no certain way to improve sperm count. While environmental changes and nutritional supplements may offer some benefit, it is not likely the effect will be large enough to make a difference in your fertility. If there is a problem, be sure to see a fellowship trained fertility urologist. Most are not trained in infertility. Please check with a fertility center to know. ...Read more
Can vs. Should: Of course you can. The question is whether you should. Ideally, oral sex should be a love-making act and it would therefore make sense only to have sex with someone you love. Like genital sex, oral sex carries some risk of acquiring a sexually transmitted disease and so you should be careful with whom you have sex in order to reduce the risk. ...Read more
Gone forever: Just like the lost hairs that fall from the scalp each day, and like the lost skin cells that flake off of the entire body each day, the many sperm that come out of the penis each day are also lost and gone forever. There is no way to recover them, but what would a guy do if he saved them? The two exceptions are: freezing them in a sperm bank or starting a pregnancy (1 sperm "becomes" a baby). ...Read more
Possibly, unlikely: When sperm are deposited into the vagina they quickly move into the cervical mucus to avoid the acid ph of the vagina. Once in the cervical mucus the sperm swim through to the uterus and up to the egg over the next few days. Good cervical mucus is usually only present for 1-3 days before ovulation. It would be rare that the mucus would be good for 2 weeks and the sperm survive - not impossible. ...Read more
Easy. Stay healthy: Sperm production wants to run hard and fast. By poisoning your body with drugs, tobacco and processed foods (i call it airport food) you drag things down. Stay fit, stay trim, stay healthy, reduce your stress and treat your body like a temple. See: http://www. Theturekclinic. Com/increase-male-fertility. Html. ...Read more
Avoid chemicals: Questioner wants to increase sperm counts. I do not think there is a medication to do this. The focus should be on a lifestyle that avoids chemicals and toxins. It seems to be the case that sperm counts within the male population are trending downward. A causal candidate is the increase and pervasiveness of synthetic chemicals in our environment, including household products and food. ...Read more
Yes: "clumpy" semen is a fairly common finding in men and almost always of no clinical significance especially in the absence of any symptoms. Contributing factors may include infrequent ejaculation, dehydration, diet, inflammation, and less often infection. If no symptoms of prostate inflammation or infection (pain, burning, blood in semen), then no further evaluation needed. ...Read more
