Preserving Your Fertility
If you’ve recently been diagnosed with cancer—or another serious disease—you’ve likely been told that you need to take immediate action. You might have also been told that your treatment will include very difficult rounds of medicines, and that those medicines can result in a loss of your fertility.
For many people, this is devastating news. If you’ve had your heart set on having a family of your own one day, a cancer diagnosis can be especially alarming. You may wonder if you’ll ever be able to have children—and where to turn for help.
At a Rhea of Hope, we can help you explore your options—and restore your hope in the possibility of having children of your own.
Working in conjunction with your healthcare team and depending on your particular diagnosis, we can help you explore the various fertility-preservation options available to you. These options may include harvesting and freezing eggs, freezing embryos, or preserving your ovarian tissue.
Combined with your existing treatment protocols and timelines, this process may feel overwhelming or confusing. We understand how sensitive and stressful making these decisions can be and that’s why we’re here to help.
At a Rhea of Hope, we will help educate and empower you to make the decisions you need to make—and help instill that sense of hope you need to overcome your illness and turn your dreams into reality.
