In this podcast, we speak to Dr. James Smith, professor of urology, obstetrics, gynecology, and reproductive sciences at the University of California, San Francisco. We discuss the topic of men's health and fertility preservation, with a focus on sperm banking as the primary method for preserving fertility. We also discuss the challenges of fertility preservation for transgender patients and the ethical and medical complexities that come with it. Dr. Smith highlights the work of ASRM and its Fertility Preservation Special Interest Group in advocating for patients and developing guidelines for sperm banking. The podcast also explores insurance coverage for sperm banking and the need for clinicians to help patients achieve their family goals.
