Fertility Preservation in Women for Social Reasons

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingEncyclopaedia / Dictionary EntryOtherpeer-review

Abstract

Life circumstances, including not having a partner, may prevent women from having children during their most fertile years. To avoid age-related infertility women who plan to have children at an age when their fertility is likely to have declined can freeze their eggs (oocyte cryopreservation) when they are younger and use them in an assisted reproductive technology (ART) procedure when the time for childbearing is right for them. This chapter will discuss social, medical, and psychological aspects of fertility preservation for non-medical reasons.
