Fertility Preservation Options For Women

Knowing that there are options for many women to protect or preserve their reproductive potential before cancer treatment begins can make it less challenging to discuss the possible reproductive side effects of treatment with your patients. There are two strategies that can be used: – (1) removing and freezing gametes (eggs) or (2) taking steps to reduce the reproductive impact of cancer treatment. For interested patients, consultation with a fertility specialist before treatment begins is highly recommended.
