One out of eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer. It is no secret that breast cancer treatments can have undesirable outcomes when it comes to your fertility. However, there is hope and The Center for Reproductive Medicine is here for you before and after cancer treatment.
First, talk with your oncologist after a breast cancer diagnosis. Don’t assume the doctor will ask about your future plans for a family. Discuss these concerns prior to beginning your cancer treatments. Collecting mature eggs from a woman’s ovaries is a promising option to preserve fertility. Banking eggs is best done prior to receiving treatment. At The Center for Reproductive Medicine, we offer multiple treatment options: egg freezing, embryo freezing and ovarian tissue cryopreservation. These technologies allow the possibility of expanding your family at a time that is right for you.
If you are met with a breast cancer diagnosis and wish to learn more about protecting your fertility, take the next step and schedule a consultation with one of our fertility specialists. We can be reached at 251-438-4200.
