Cancer and Protection of Reproduction

Technological advances towards the protection of reproduction reveals that cancer patients should no longer be afraid infertility after treatment. Informing cancer patients about such kind of recent developments is one of the most important duties of us that deal with reproductive health.

About 90% of all the eggs die in the treatment of cancer. 10% of cancer patients are under the age of 45, and the concern with top priority for patients surviving cancer is to have a baby. A solution and concept called "protection of reproduction" is now available for both males and females. Very few oncologists inform their patients about the protection of reproduction. Patients with cancer face with the truth of loosing their reproduction ability while struggling for life. Thanks to modern science and technology, cancer can be detected at an early stage and cured. However, the treatment destroys reproductive cells. There are hundreds of babies today born after cryopreservation.
