Abstract

in English, Spanish

In recent years, medical advances have substantially improved survival of cancer patients, generating growing concern about the quality of life of the survivors. Increased attention has been paid to reproductive problems after oncological treatments. International guidelines on fertility preservation in cancer patients require that healthcare teams discuss, as early as possible, the impact of cancer treatments on fertility and encourage access to fertility preservation techniques. The development of these techniques in women is a recent effort and many patients and health care providers are not familiar with their rapid expansion. This article discusses indications, results, and risks of the different options currently available.
