Baby holding hands

At Moffitt Cancer Center, we understand that fertility preservation is important to many of our patients. Certain cancer treatments can interfere with a person’s reproductive ability, but there’s no need to choose between raising a family and receiving life-saving care. At Moffitt, both men and women can access the latest options in cancer care while keeping their future families in mind.

When developing a patient’s treatment plan, Moffitt’s oncologists and reproductive endocrinologists will make note of any treatments that could possibly have an impact on his or her fertility. For instance, radiation therapy and chemotherapy interfere with the body’s ability to produce sperm or eggs, while surgical removal of the reproductive organs can end a person’s ability to bear children.

Several fertility preservation options are available, however, each one must be considered in light of each patient’s specific needs. These options include methods of preservation, such as:

  • Egg (oocyte) freezing
  • Embryo freezing
  • Sperm banking (freezing)

Many other options can also be discussed, such as:

  • Donor-assisted reproduction (donor eggs, sperm and embryos)
  • Surrogacy
  • Adoption
  • Child-free living

We provide patients with the information and support they need to make the fertility preservation decision that’s best for their own unique physical, emotional and psychosocial needs.
