Ovarian tissue preservation is a more recent fertility approach and only available through select clinics. This procedure involves the removal of ovarian tissue containing an ample reserve of immature eggs, which is then frozen. Any patient undergoing cancer treatment can later have the tissue returned to the body, enabling the eggs to develop.
The benefit with this procedure is that cancer patients may use this before chemotherapy. Once the ovarian tissue is returned to the body, it has the potential to restore natural hormone production and cycles. This may increase chances of conceiving naturally.
