Fertility Preservation

UF Health reproductive medicine physicians offer immediate counseling and care for male and female cancer patients for fertility issues and fertility preservation.

Infertility may be caused directly by the cancer or result from the necessary treatments. We offer several clinical and research options for men and women with cancer who face potential loss of fertility from chemotherapy and radiation therapy, including treatments available only through collaborative research studies. We are a site for the NIH-funded Oncofertility Consortium ovarian tissue freezing project.

Fertility preservation options available at UF Health include:

Funding may be available through various on-line charities/organizations to help cover the cost of medications and storage fees. We also have patient consult support funding via donations from the Climb For Cancer Foundation.

To help answer some of these questions, there is oncofertility, an interdisciplinary and interprofessional approach to developing and providing new fertility preservation options to young men, women, and children who have been diagnosed with cancer or other serious diseases and who must undergo potentially fertility-threatening treatment.
