Cancer and Fertility 

What fertility preservation options are available for people diagnosed with cancer? Kim Smith, a patient navigator at the Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center of Northwestern University, helps explain the top three options.

1) egg freezing

2) embryo freezing

3) ovarian tissue freezing

Northwestern is currently in the process of developing a new method called in vitro maturation.

To find out more information on all three of these options and to discover more on in vitro maturation check out triblocal’s article on fertility preservation or check out Fertile Action’s Fertility Preservation section.
