When a person has to undergo chemotherapy treatments, it is possible to preserve fertility by freezing the eggs before starting the treatment. This decision is often made on short notice, as chemotherapy must be initiated as soon as possible to maximize the chances of recovery. During such a period, the interventions related to the provision of care are delicate both psychologically and physically, and often carried out in a demanding context. It is therefore important to ensure comprehensive care. The fertility preservation program at the clinique ovo, through its nursing staff, will ensure your preparation, coordination with the treating teams in interdisciplinarity with our own, as well as the post-procedure follow-up. A meeting with a psychologist on site is also suggested.
Freezing sperm is a straightforward procedure. The sperm is collected by self-masturbation; it is then analyzed by the laboratory and processed to allow for efficient freezing. If the patient has an ejaculation disorder or a diagnosis of infertility, the sperm can be retrieved surgically.
You are born with a predetermined number of eggs. Each month, the number is depleted and over time, the quality of these eggs deteriorates. When the eggs are older, the risk of miscarriage or chromosomal problems such as Down Syndrome in the unborn child increases considerably.
However, there is something you can do, and that is to preserve your eggs now, so that when you decide to start a family, you will be able to do so.
