Men and women of reproductive age can undergo fertility preservation. A man’s typical reproductive window is usually between puberty and when they experience a decline in the quantity and quality of their sperm. A woman’s typical reproductive window is between puberty and menopause.
A man would preserve his sperm and a woman would preserve her eggs. In the case of a couple, embryos (fertilized eggs) can be preserved.
Indefinitely - they will be available when the patient is ready to use them.
Your oncologist will work closely with your reproductive endocrinologist to create a personalized treatment plan for you. Preferably, preservation would occur before radiation, chemotherapy, or surgery and would not cause a delay in your cancer treatment.
Preserve Fertility provides treatment and medication grants to patients diagnosed with cancer to help cover them afford fertility preservation. We also offer education and support throughout this difficult journey. Learn more about us.
