Fertility Preservation in Females
A growing majority of women in the western hemisphere have been delaying initiation of childbearing to later in life. Consequently, more than ever before, women in their late 30s to early 40s are attempting their first pregnancy. Since the incidence of most cancers increases with age, delayed childbearing results in more female cancer survivors interested in fertility preservation.
