Here's how you can TAKE CHARGE and start the conversation with your doctor.
When you don't have
Sarah did not get a chance to have The Talk, listen to her story and her struggles with fertility post-cancer treatment. When possible, at-risk patients should see a fertility preservation specialist prior to starting cancer treatment. By having The Talk early, you can Take Charge and know your options. So start the conversation NOW!
Even in post treatment, continue to discuss or do fertility testing. Continued fertility testing could include semen analysis for men who may be able to know more concretely than women their fertility status.
For women, there are different tests that can help determine their fertility status.

There are options for everyone no matter what you choose and how you define your needs.
