Originally developed to help young cancer patients who wanted preserve the possibility of having biological children after treatment, fertility preservation is the process of saving eggs or sperm for potential future use. In addition to cancer patients, it is chiefly used by women with endometriosis, fibroids, genetic issues affecting fertility or autoimmune diseases as well as those who delay having children for personal reasons. With advances in technology and medicine, more and more fertility preservation options are available today.
