Who Can Benefit from Fertility Preservation?
The field of reproductive medicine is constantly evolving. One of the most remarkable concepts to emerge over the last few decades is fertility preservation. This treatment involves saving eggs or sperm for future use so patients can conceive biological children when they are ready.
Fertility preservation allows patients to use young, viable eggs or sperm for conception, reducing the risk for complications later on.
There are a few different reasons why individuals may choose fertility preservation. For example, some patients have diseases, disorders, or other medical conditions that could negatively affect fertility, while others may simply wish to wait until they are older to have a child. Fertility preservation allows patients to use young, viable eggs or sperm for conception, reducing the risk for complications later on.
Individuals who can benefit from fertility preservation include those who:
- Need to undergo chemotherapy or radiation
- Have endometriosis
- Have uterine fibroids
- Have a genetic disease linked to potential infertility
- Are about to undergo treatment for an autoimmune disease
- Have been exposed to toxic chemicals
