Fertility preservation

Fertility preservation

The Spanish Fertility Society (SEF) defines fertility preservation as assisted reproduction techniques treatments where the goal is to achieve a pregnancy at a later point in time.

Patients may require these techniques to postpone parenthood for personal or medical reasons:

  • Oocytes cryopreservation: the treatment entails a specific hormone therapy to encourage the development of several follicles, after which we proceed to collect the eggs and cryopreserve them for later use.
  • Sperm freezing: It is normally recommended to patients that will undergo oncological therapies or other medical treatments that can have an impact on their sperm quality.
