Fertility preservation refers to the process of taking steps to protect and retain a person's fertility for future use, especially when there are concerns about potential fertility challenges in the future. This is often considered by individuals who are facing medical treatments, health conditions, or life circumstances that could negatively impact their ability to conceive naturally later on.
Various techniques are available for preserving fertility, such as freezing eggs, sperm, embryos, and ovarian tissue. The choice of method relies on factors like age, reproductive well-being, and personal choices.
Fertility preservation has gained popularity among those aiming for delayed parenthood, and technological progress has improved its effectiveness and availability.
