FEMALE FERTILITY PRESERVATION

What is female fertility preservation: Fertility preservation is the freezing and storing of eggs, embryos or ovarian tissue so that you can use them later to attempt to have children. Some people call this egg or embryo banking, this is different than donor eggs or embryos, you are preserving your own eggs or embryos, not someone else’s so that you can use them in the future to attempt a pregnancy.

Why you would use fertility preservation: Fertility preservation is a great option for those facing any of the following that can affect future fertility:

  • cancer treatments
  • military deployments
  • hormone treatments
  • extended travel
  • urological or gynecological surgeries
  • other medical treatments
  • potential exposure to harmful substances
  • aging
