In vitro preservation  // Auto  Conservation  //  Auto  Preservation of Sperm

Auto Conservation or Auto preservation or In-vitro  preservation of sperm  means preservation of own sperm for  future use.

In other word auto conservation or auto preservation is insurance for future fertility. The preserved  sperm may be used even after decades, therefore the safest method of preservation should be used.

Long term preservation of sperm with H.S.A. is not a safe method. Firstly H.S.A. is a potential vector to carry microorganism, fungus and virus. Secondly there is always a threat of emerging or undetected viruses/organism.

In future emerging or undetected viruses/organism may be a reason to discard preserved sperm.
In the evolutionary world  auto conservation is now in demand.  The field like oncology, neurology, urology, infertility management are facing problem like no-sperm, less-sperm or abnormal-sperm. To maintain the generation  & reproducing capability, sperms need to be preserved in safest way for future use.
