Preserving Fertility

What is Fertility Preservation?

Fertility preservation involves the process of protecting and storing reproductive cells—eggs or sperm—to maintain the potential for future conception. This proactive approach is particularly relevant for individuals facing life events or medical treatments that may impact their fertility


How It Is Done:

  1. Egg Freezing (Oocyte Cryopreservation):
    • Women undergo ovarian stimulation to produce multiple eggs.
    • Mature eggs are retrieved, flash-frozen, and stored for later use.
  2. **Sperm Freezing (Sperm Cryopreservation):**
    • Men provide a sperm sample, which is then frozen and stored for future use.



The primary objective of fertility preservation is to offer individuals the opportunity to have biological children in the future, even if they face circumstances that may compromise their fertility. It provides a proactive solution for those undergoing medical treatments, such as chemotherapy, or individuals who wish to delay family building for personal or professional reasons.


Clinical Indications:

  • Cancer Patients: Individuals undergoing cancer treatments that may impact fertility.
  • Family Planning: Couples delaying family building for personal or career reasons.
  • Medical Conditions* Those facing medical conditions or procedures that may affect fertility.


Things to Take Note:

  • Timely Decision: Fertility preservation is most effective when undertaken before the start of medical treatments or before age-related decline sets in.
  • Individualized Approach: The decision to pursue fertility preservation is highly personal. Our expert team provides individualized guidance to help you make informed choices.
  • Not a Guarantee: While fertility preservation significantly improves the chances of future conception, it does not guarantee a successful pregnancy. Factors like age and overall health play a role.
  • Emotional Support: Deciding to preserve fertility can be emotionally complex. Our team offers compassionate support throughout the process.
