Chris Biblis was 16 when his leukemia treatment required radiation that would leave him sterile. He cryogenically froze his sperm and 22 years later…voila! Baby girl! This is the record setting amount of time sperm has been frozen and successfully used to conceive a baby. The technology to do this wasn’t even around when it was frozen!
“The case is being hailed as an illustration of how far infertility treatment has advanced in the past two decades and proof that sperm can remain viable for decades if they are preserved in liquid nitrogen. The previous record was 21 years.”
