Types of Medical Fertility Preservation

There are three types of medical fertility preservation offered at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York. Speak with any of our board-certified physicians if you’re worried that a pre-existing or potential medical condition may impede upon your ability to start a family. Decide between the following choices with our experienced fertility doctors to see what’s best for you, your body, and your future.


Egg Freezing

Eggs are extracted from a participating woman’s body and frozen for later use. This is typically performed when the patient has no male partner.


Embryo Freezing

Embryo freezing can take place when a woman’s egg is already fertilized with sperm. This process is performed when the patient has a male partner or uses donated sperm (from a sperm bank).


Sperm Freezing

Sperm can be frozen on males to be used later.


Fertility Preservation for Cancer Patients

Our doctors see a variety of patients, including newly diagnosed and long-term cancer survivors. Newly diagnosed patients need help with fertility preservation before any cancer treatment can begin. Cancer treatments such as chemotherapy or radiation therapy can cause permanent sterilization  – a fertilization preservation plan must be created beforehand. Long-term patients, on the other hand, have different needs. Their fertility must be first assessed in order to gauge a potential success rate post-cancer.

Assistive hormone medication may be needed to optimize fertility.  Patients experiencing the complex issue of cancer and potential infertility can find unparalleled comfort and advice with NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York.
