With the recent advances in assisted reproductive technologies women have many more options and choices for building families than ever before. The standard fertility preservation methods include:

Embryo Cryopreservation

Embryo cryopreservation is the most widely used and trusted method of fertility preservation. Embryo cryopreservation is generally performed as a component in vitro fertilization and freezing of the embryos. The main techniques used for embryo cryopreservation are vitrification versus slow programmable freezing (SPF).

Oocyte Cryopreservation

Oocyte cryopreservation (egg freezing) is a process in which a woman’s eggs (oocytes) are extracted, frozen and stored. Later, when she is ready to become pregnant, the eggs can be thawed, fertilized, and transferred to the uterus as embryos.

New methods of fertility that are undergoing research include:

Ovarian Tissue Cryopreservation: Ovarian tissue cryopreservation is cryopreservation of tissue of the ovary of a female. The freezing of ovarian tissue that can be placed back in the body after cancer treatment.

Ovarian Suppression: The use of specific hormones to stop the ovaries from working. The latest research suggests that this does not work well for protecting fertility during cancer treatment, but clinical trials are ongoing.
