When Fertility Preservation can be opted?
Updated: Jul 15, 2018
Women who wish to delay childbearing until their late 30s or early 40s may consider methods of fertility preservation such as freezing of embryos after IVF or retrieving and freezing eggs for later use.
Young women about to begin cancer treatment are encouraged to attempt a cycle of IVF if time permits, as storing an embryo is more likely to be successful than using a frozen follicle for later use.
In addition, young women may store ovarian tissue, in the hope that at a later stage their tissue can be reimplanted, or that the use of in vitro growth and maturation of immature follicles may restore fertility
