Cancer treatment can impact your fertility (ability to have a baby). Although you may not want to have children now, fertility preservation will give you the option of having your own children later on.
It is best to take action to preserve your fertility before receiving any type of cancer treatment. Sometimes cancer treatment can wait so that fertility preservation can happen first. There are some circumstances when it may not be safe to wait to start cancer treatment. Your health care team can help you decide on the safest option for you.
