Many cancer treatments affect fertility in girls and women. With ovarian tissue freezing and transplantation, you can preserve your reproductive ability and restore your fertility following remission.
Some women choose to freeze their eggs for medical reasons, while others want to hold off on family building while they pursue other aspects of life. Fortunately, there are options to preserve your fertility until you’re ready.
Dr. Oktay, Annie, and Heather discuss ovary freezing and Annie’s personal experience with this procedure.
At two weeks old, the human embryo has only just begun its months-long journey to become a baby.
But before Annie started treatment, she walked out of the doctor’s office and crossed the street to see a fertility doctor doing an experimental procedure that sounded like science fiction: ovary freezing.
