Trans Health Care – Fertility Preservation

Fertility preservation may provide the option of having genetically related children now or in the future. Sperm banking can be done prior to the initiation of hormone replacement therapy. If hormone replacement therapy has begun, individuals may need to stop medications for a short time period prior to sperm banking.  It is recommended to stop any hormone therapy 3 months prior to scheduling a sperm banking appointment.

For individuals with ovaries, hormone replacement therapy medication will need to pause for approximately 4 weeks before starting an egg freezing cycle, and remain off throughout the cycle (approximately 6 weeks).
