Let's Talk Egg Freezing for Fertility Preservation
Fertility preservation is more commonly known as egg freezing and can be performed for social or medical reasons.
Women who have been diagnosed with a medical condition, like cancer, should consider freezing their eggs before enduring chemotherapy or other cancer treatments that could impact ovarian reserve.
Studies have shown that oncologists seldom discuss the implications of chemotherapy on a woman’s fertility and simply do not refer their patients to an egg freezing specialist (fertility doctor) as often as they should. It is important for women to be educated on the options for fertility preservation, and proactive about freezing their eggs to maximize their chances for successfully building a family in the future.
