Who can preserve their fertility?

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.

What will be preserved?

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.

How long can eggs, embryos and sperm remain viable while frozen?

Indefinitely - they will be available when the patient is ready to use them.

When should I preserve my fertility?

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.
