Following last July's show, I was asked to visit Great Day Houston again to talk more about fertility-sparing treatments for women who wish to delay conception.
Tune in to Great Day Houston with Deborah Duncan - Tuesday, October 21
at 9 AM Central on KHOU-Channel 11. Or watch online by clicking the Live Video link from http://www.greatdayhouston.com/ during airtime.
The techniques to retrieve and freeze egg cells for future conception are primarily offered to women who have just been diagnosed with cancer. We're working on collaborative relationships with cancer specialists and other professionals who can quickly refer patients for fertility preservation before they undergo sterility-causing cancer treatment.
As long as patients are willing to educate themselves and be fully aware of the process involved, women without cancer can also utilize fertility preservation technology to have a baby later.
