Slovak soldiers have sperm frozen

ABOUT one-third of the 75 Slovak soldiers that are being sent to the Persian Gulf as part of an anti-chemical unit have had their sperm frozen in a sperm bank.

The sperm of soldiers will be stored for a year, said Jozef Valky, chief physician at the centre for assisted reproduction ISCARE.

He said that reproductive capability can be damaged by chemical weapons attacks, citing instances resulting from both the Vietnam War and Desert Storm in 1991.

The soldiers paid a quarter of the regular price to have the procedure done.
