Reproductive cells cannot be stored at home. For egg and sperm cells to be available for later use, they have to be cryopreserved at special conditions. Moreover, in the case of egg freezing, surgery is necessary prior to storing the ova, so the woman has to necessarily visit an egg bank or fertility clinic.
