Ovarian cortex cryopreservation for ovarian cancer

Treatment for ovarian cancer may cause damage to the ovaries, which produce eggs needed for reproduction. In some cases, treatment may require the surgical removal of one or both ovaries.

Although challenging, fertility options do exist. Ask your care team about the oncofertility preservation options that suit your needs.
