Prevalence of cancer has been increasing in the last years. Fortunately, during the last three decades, there has been a tremendous improvement in the success rates of cancer treatments and a continual rise in the survival rates. Given the improvement in survival rates with cancer treatment and developments in the field of reproductive medicine, fertility preservation for female cancer patients has become a very sensible issue. Today, several methods are available for preserving the reproductive potential of these patients. This review will focus on the options for fertility preservation offered to young cancer patients.
