Improvements in diagnosis and treatment of cancer patients have lead to increase in their survival rates. An increasing number of people are now cured of cancer and are concerned about their options of bearing children with their own gametes. Chemo and radiotherapy are known to be gonadotoxic. The major concerns regarding handling of gametes of cancer survivors is related to their quantity and quality, non availability of any gamete in future, freezing and storage issues.
Sperm cryopreservation is a well established technique. Though, embryo freezing is much more an effective technique for female fertility preservation, this option cannot be offered to patients who do not have a partner and are not in consent to accepting donor sperm. Hence, oocyte cryopreservation can be offered to these patients.
