Sperm cell, Egg cell and Embryo Freezing

If need be, sperm cells, egg cells and embryos can be cryopreserved and used at a later time for a fertility treatment.

In acute cases, such as a chemo or radiation therapy, which is scheduled to begin very soon, we ask you to contact us by telephone without delay.
We would be happy to support you by telephone under T +43 1 934 69 79. Even if you find yourself in a very stressful situation at the moment, it is still important not to lose any time.

  • Surplus of embryos in an IVF-Treatment
  • Health reasons which damage fertility (low egg cell reserve, serious endometriosis, testicular illness, malignant illnesses or a planned chemo or radiation therapy)
  • Planned gender change (transsexuality)

Cryopreservation of sperm cells and oocytes is only allowed in Austria for medical reasons.
Unfortunately, “social freezing”, so that family planning can be postponed a few years in order to avoid the age-related reduction in fertility, is against the law in Austria. Men and women who are interested in a “social freezing” treatment can undergo this in Germany.
