Storage of embryos or sperm for use in treatment

Your NHS treatment includes storage of embryos for two years from the date of your treatment. If you wish to continue storage beyond this, you will have to meet the storage costs (see the information on the Privately Funded Treatment). If you store sperm for use in further treatment the same charges apply, the exception to this is storage for oncology or in certain cases other medical reasons.
