Abstract

Objective: To review options for fertility preservation in women with gynecologic cancers. Design: Literature review. Result(s): We discuss the data regarding cancer treatment and fertility outcomes and current controversies for women with gynecologic cancers. Conclusion(s): Gynecologic cancers represent 12%-15% of cancers affecting women, and 21% of these are diagnosed in women of reproductive age. Current advances in our understanding of these diseases, along with improved multimodality treatment, allow for consideration of fertility options. For some women with gynecologic cancers, fertility-sparing treatment might be appropriate. ©2005 by American Society for Reproductive Medicine.
