What are the cases or scenarios involving delays to finalize the fertility treatment?

The rationale of the fertility experts / fertility medicine is to prioritize the treatment based on a rational diagnosis before opting for the treatment plan. The conditions like bilateral tubal disease, severe male infertility and anovulation will surely call for an intervention from reproductive healthcare. The cases involving unclear attribution to a definitive cause involving ambiguity or debates such as mild / moderate male factor infertility, cervical factor infertility, mild endometriosis and unexplained infertility may require further analysis using more than one categories of diagnosis. The duration of infertility, the types of infertility as whether it?s primary or secondary are some of the most important factors to consider.

Are there any options available for the men with cancer to preserve their fertility?

The fertility preservation in men with cancer also has several options prior to begin the treatment and after the treatment. The men with cancer can opt for the fertility preservation prior to treatment using the options like sperm banking and radiation shielding. Sperm collection prior to the cancer treatment may benefit the person as much as the sperm collection benefits the men without cancer. Sperm banking may promise dozens of pregnancies without any major risks of birth defects or health issues in children. The sperm may be preserved for several years under stiff clinical observatories. The success rates of the fertility treatments involving the usage of the sperm, however, may be influenced by a number of factors such as age of the female partner, health / medical history of the female partner and the quality of the sperm after having been thawed.
