Fertility Preservation Options

Fertility Preservation Options

Preserving fertility by freezing eggs, sperm, or embryos is recommended for patients in many different circumstances.

While this issue of our newsletter is highlighting breast cancer awareness, I would also like to take this opportunity to discuss some other scenarios in which fertility preservation should be considered.
