Male fertility treatments
If you need to have treatment for cancer that may affect your fertility, there are options available to ensure you can still have children in the future. Chemotherapy and radiotherapy can affect your sperm production – sometimes this is temporary but in other cases it may be permanent.We strongly recommend you contact us before commencing any cancer treatment.
Before you begin chemotherapy or radiotherapy, your sperm can be frozen and kept until you wish to start a family.
Men who have to travel overseas or work in dangerous situations may also want to have their sperm frozen for use in the future.
How does sperm freezing work?

If you are unable to collect semen or if there are no sperm in the semen, due to illness, we may be able to collect sperm directly from your testicles using a needle. Called TESE
