Sperm Storage

Sperm storage allows sperm to be preserved in liquid nitrogen for the preservation of fertility. It is also sometimes required as part of the process of fertility treatment.

It is often used by:

  • Men who are about to undergo treatment that could affect their fertility such as chemotherapy, radiotherapy, hormone therapy and surgery.
  • Transexual women undergoing a male to female transition
  • Men who are about to have a vasectomy
  • Men whose partners are undergoing fertility treatment
  • Men who are assisting a couple undergoing fertility treatment

We are the only sperm storage centre in WA not attached to an IVF clinic. Some people find that this means they have a more comfortable, discrete experience.

If the sample is required in the future, we can provide intrauterine insemination or the samples can be transported as required for insemination.

Legal Requirements

It is necessary to re-consent every five years in order to continue storage.

Samples can only be stored for a maximum of 15 years. Storage can be extended past this time with permission from the WA Reproductive Technology Council.

If we are unable to contact you at these time points we are legally obligated to dispose of your samples. For this reason we ask that you keep us informed of any changes to your contact details by emailing
