Children: Preserving the Ability to Have (Fertility)

Banking Embryos

« Previous


Embryo freezing is one way to preserve the ability to have children.

The process, which takes place over 2 -6 weeks, is as follows:

  • Ovaries are stimulated to provide multiple eggs.
  • Doctors remove the eggs.
  • The eggs are fertilized in the lab with sperm from a partner or donor.
  • The resulting embryos are frozen for future use.

The nonprofit organization, Fertile Hope, has a Sharing Hope Program For Women that provides discounted services and donated medications for eligible female cancer patients. The financial requirement is an annual household income less than $75,000 (single) or $100,000 (married). To learn more, see: offsite link or call: Fertile Hope: 888.994.HOPE
