We recommend STI testing for everyone who intends on analyzing a semen sample followed by cryopreservation. While your journey today might not involve assisted reproductive technologies such as IVF, an STI test associated with your sample around the time of analysis and storage would enable retrieval and use in the future (we suggest within 10 days). A negative STI test associated with your specimen rules out STI related complications and reduces possible risk to mother and baby. Fertility clinics have varying requirements for accepting and using semen samples. Depending on your specific circumstances and the clinic you choose to use, completing STI testing within 10 days of storing your sample generates a report close to the time of sample cryopreservation which may be used as proof of a negative test for use of your sample at a later date.
