What Is Fertility Preservation?
Fertility preservation is a sophisticated medical treatment that helps maintain an individual’s ability to achieve pregnancy in the future. The process involves preserving a man or woman’s reproductive organs and tissue so that it is possible to have children later. Manhattan Reproductive Surgery Center will explain your options and offer support as you plan your future family.
When You Should Consider Fertility Preservation
People consider fertility preservation for a variety of personal and health reasons. Some individuals want to focus on a career or other aspect of their life before beginning a family. Others have physical concerns they must address before attempting to become pregnant. We recommend fertility preservation if:
- You are facing a cancer diagnosis and have not begun treatment
- You have a family history of premature menopause
- You must undergo surgery that could impact your reproductive system
- You have conditions such as endometriosis that may affect your fertility
Our Comprehensive Fertility Preservation Options

Following an evaluation of your circumstances and medical history, our medical professionals will explain what may work best for you. We encourage you and your partner to be present for the consultation. Our options include:
- Egg freezing

Fertility Preservation for Cancer Patients
Fertility preservation is especially important among young cancer patients. Many cancer treatments – such as chemotherapy and radiation – can cause sterilization. Therefore, Manhattan Reproductive Surgery Center works with patients before beginning cancer treatment to preserve their reproductive capacities. We use innovative procedures to preserve and protect embryos, gametes, and gonadal tissue. Our fertility specialists can also preserve gametes and tissues in cancer survivors. We also offer Ovarian Tissue Cryopreservation for women of all ages facing a cancer diagnosis for the most effective treatment in an expedited procedure prior to cancer treatment. Every treatment is different, so we will work with you to address your individual concerns and issues throughout the process.
Complications Couples Face During Fertility Preservation
Couples may face an array of obstacles when planning fertility preservation. The most critical complication is often timing, especially if cancer treatments must begin soon. We will coordinate with your oncologist to ensure we can maintain your ability to start a family in the future. Our team wants to make the process as smooth and stress-free as possible. Another issue you may encounter is the need for a specialized approach. But have no fear. Our experts are proficient with all types of fertility preservation and will ensure effectiveness. If you have an estrogen-sensitive cancer, we will stimulate your ovaries or preserve ovarian tissue to safely preserve your fertility.
