Is it possible to preserve fertility in children with cancer?

By Dr. Paloma de la Fuente Vaquero.
Last Update: 03/13/2019

Today, preservation of fertility is possible if the child has already reached sexual maturity. Once children have reached sexual maturity, it is possible to obtain ejaculate with sperm. In this way, the sample obtained could be frozen to be used in future assisted reproduction treatments.

Sexual maturity is usually attained around 13 years of age.
