Women are surviving cancer in greater numbers. For this population, fertility becomes an important issue to be discussed before treatment to ensure maximal chances of fertility after treatment completion. Options for fertility preservation include egg or embryo freezing, ovarian tissue freezing, as well as gonadotropin releasing hormone analogs. The option for each individual patient will depend on the type of cancer, its aggressiveness and the time before treatment needs to commence, the type of treatment, the health of the patient, and whether the patient has a male partner.
