Young couples who are not willing to have child immediately or would like to wait for some years before starting a family can store and freeze their sperm or egg in the center’s bank, said Mohammad Mahdi Akhundi, head of the Ibn Sina Infertility and Miscarriage Treatment center in Tehran. “Sperm can be frozen for future use either in artificial insemination or other fertility treatments,” Alef News Agency quoted him as saying. The frozen sperms and eggs are implanted only to the donor couples, so it is completely legal, he said.
