Fertility and Cancer Treatment
Cancer treatment can impact your fertility (ability to have a baby). You may not want to have children now, but you may want them later. Fertility preservation gives 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 and the AYA Program can help you decide on the safest option for you.
