Fertility

Aggressive cancer treatments can often threaten a young adult’s future fertility. Patients who are concerned about wanting to start a family someday can work with fertility preservation organizations to help ensure that this is an option for them down the road.

  • University Hospitals Fertility Center: The UH Fertility Center can help young patients plan for the future by helping them preserve their fertility before undergoing cancer treatment.
  • The Oncofertility Consortium: Provides resources to help young cancer patients whose fertility may be threatened by their disease or its treatment.
