  • IMO you shouldn't force it by trying to freeze his sperm or using a turkey baster. You should just wait until you can get together and make time to make love. My hubby works 12hr shifts and I see him for maybe 4 hrs a day, we have 2 children but we make the time to be together. It will happen when it's supposed to. :)

  • dont freeze it. you can refrigerate it. but warm it to body tempeture first before "using" it. (like hold the container under your shirt for a while dont like microwave it or anything!

  • They refrigerate it at the sperm bank. I dotn know how long it lasts though. I bet you could google it.

  • Okay, first off why?? Second if you freeze sperm it will die. In the lab they are flash frozen in seconds to a temperature hundreds times colder than your freezer. At sperm banks they only have so long after ejaculation to test it before they die.

  • You can't freeze sperm it does not have the right temperatures for it.
    Also can't do the fridge.
    You can use a cryo bank that has special cylinders to store it until you need to use it.
    Anything else will be a waste and you will lose the mobility needed for the sperm.
    The only other way was if it got preserved for several hours is by using a specail kit called a bio tranz.
    Than use a needeless syringe to inject.
