Fertility preservation is exactly what the name implies. It involves techniques that can extend a person’s childbearing years. Fertility preservation is well-suited to those who have medical conditions that may affect fertility. For example, a person diagnosed with cancer may need radiation therapy and/or chemotherapy, both of which can significantly decrease fertility.
