Protocol for Post-Morten Sperm Retrieval

The Urologist's Perspective

March 17, 1999 was the first time a baby was born conceived from sperm retireved post-mortem. The man was deceased for 30 hours prior to retrieval and the sperm was frozen for five years.

The recommended procedure for sperm retrieval in the post-mortem state is:

  • Absolutely sterile conditions
  • After shaving and prepping the genital area, a 3-4 cm incision is made in the scrotum, through the tunica vaginalis and the testicle is delivered (the procedure should be done bilaterally)
  • Resect the testicle and epididymis bilaterally
  • The specimen should be placed in a sterile specimen container in a solution of Ham's (if unavailable, normal saline or Ringer's lactate may suffice)
  • The tissue should be kept cool (not cold - approximately 50 - 60 degrees) and transferred to a sperm bank or ART laboratory that has experience and facilities to extract and freeze viable sperm

Time is important and the sooner the better, but on one occasion a period of approximately 40 hours between death and cryopreservation demonstrated motile sperm.

National averages range from 3-4 insemination cycles per successful pregnancy. We recommend purchasing at least 5 vials per child to guarantee your donor remains available until reaching your personal family goals. Additionally, you get 1 Year FREE storage if you purchase 4 or more vials ($475 value).


Our donors sell out and retire quickly! We have thousands of clients forced to choose between a new donor or not having a second child because they chose not to store vials for future use while they were available. To help you plan for your future, we offer 3 Years FREE storage if you purchase 3 Years+ vials ($1,050 value) - as well as the ability to sell back any unused vials that have not left our control.
