Storing Fertility

Young women and girls with a malignant disease, such as cancer, face the risk of losing ovarian function and becoming sterile as a side effect of the gonadotoxic treatment they receive. 

By low temperature cryo-storage of the ovarian tissue prior to initiation of a potential sterilizing gonadotoxic treatment, it is now possible to restore fertility by transplanting the frozen/thawed tissue once the patient has recovered. 

Considerable success has been achieved in terms of restoration of hormonal cyclicity in patients, and currently, over 100 healthy children have been born worldwide as a result of transplanting frozen/thawed ovarian tissue.
