Ovarian Tissue Cryopreservation

In cases where a woman with cancer should begin her treatments as soon as possible and does not have enough time to take ovulation-inducing drugs and go through oocyte cryopreservation, a minor invasive surgery is performed to remove and cryopreserve part of the ovarian tissue that contains a number of immature ovules ready for ovulation to be later used for fertilization. After the cancer treatments are finalized when the patient is recovered, the cryopreserved ovarian tissue can be re-transplanted to restore the patient's fertility.
