Oncofertility describes a medical field that connects the characteristics of oncology and reproductive endocrinology with the aim of enhancing the reproductive ability of cancer patients and survivors. Cancer treatments including chemotherapy, radiation and surgery may damage/diminish or even destroy a person’s ability to have children in the future.
In women, these cancer therapies can lead to ovarian damage that may result in early menopause, genetically damaged eggs, ovarian failure, or other reproductive issues.
In men, these cancer therapies can destroy the testes that involve with sperm production and testosterone secretion. As cancer treatments progress and survivorship maximizes, fertility preservation opportunities in women, men and children become a growing crucial topic.
Nowadays, various treatment options exist to enhance your future fertility capability and the ability to reproduce. Consultation at Delhi IVF and Delhi Egg Freezing Centre with our Fertility expert /Reproductive Endocrinologist should be done as soon as possible after diagnosis of cancer, and ideally before the chemotherapy and radiation has started.
