Pentagon to Offer Sperm and Egg Freezing for Military

February 8, 2016

US Defense Secretary Ashton Carter launches initiative to provide sperm and egg freezing for the military.

As part of his plan to make the military more appealing and family-friendly, Mr. Carter plans to bring fertility preservation options in a pilot program. This would make the military one of the growing number of organizations such as Facebook and Apple to offer covering this reproductive medical treatment.

For those who may get injured on deployment or for women who want the option to delay childbirth while in the peak of their military careers, sperm and egg freezing provides peace of mind.
