OncoFertiHelp – preserving the fertility of oncologic patients

Cancer treatment may have a major impact on the fertility up to the point where it causes sterility.

Its effects, which may be temporary or permanent, may occur immediately or at a certain moment after completing the treatment.
The probability that the oncologic treatment affects the fertility depends on factors such as:

  • the type of cancer;
  • oncologic treatment scheme;
  • patient’s age upon treatment moment.

Male fertility may be affected by the surgical removal of the testis or the effects of the chemotherapy or radiations which lead to major damage on the quantity and quality of the sperm and DNA.

Female fertility may be compromised by oncologic treatments which involve the surgical removal of the uterus and ovaries. These treatments may also affect the ovocytes, the hormonal levels as well as the functioning of the ovaries.

The risk of early menopause set in after certain oncologic type treatments increases with age. Older women are also more prone to permanent ovarian disorder.

How can women preserve their fertility before the neoplastic disease treatment?

Women who are about to start oncologic treatments have multiple options available, among which:

  1. Cryopreservation of embryos. Within these procedures, the ovocytes are sampled by ovarian puncture, are fertilized through the in vitro fertilization, are vitrified and stored.
  2. Cryopreservation of ovocytes is similar with cryopreservation of embryos, except that in this case, the ovocytes sampled are vitrified and stored before being fertilized.

How can men preserve fertility before the neoplastic disease treatment?
In case of men, they may select the sperm cryopreservation method. Thusly, the same as for women, before commencing an oncologic treatment, they may cryopreserve the sperm, which is stored under special conditions and in special storage containers in order to be used subsequently for assisted human reproduction procedure such as in vitro insemination or fertilization.

Within Columna Medical Center, our specialists may indicate the best fertility preservation method and the fees applied to the neoplastic patients benefit from discounts between 60 and 80% compared to the list prices.
