Infertility after Cancer: Cryopreservation
Print This Page

The Johns Hopkins Fertility Center offers adolescent and adult cancer patients the option to preserve their fertility by cryopreserving sperm, embryos or ovarian tissue.  We recommend that patients contact our office at 410-583-2753 if treatment is imminent, or prior to undergoing cancer treatment for an appointment to discuss their options. 

Ovarian tissue cryopreservation is the most practical approach for our adolescent female patient.  Although the procedure is still experimental and is a developing Assisted Reproductive Technology, we recommend cryopreservation of the ovarian tissue that could benefit the patient in the future to restore her fertility once the cancer treatment has demonstrated positive results. 

Ovarian tissue cryopreservation is an option for the adult female cancer patient, while embryo cryopreservation gives us much better results. 

Male patients undergoing sterilization procedures or chemotherapy may elect to freeze their sperm.
