Fertility preservation is a discipline that has emerged within the past 20 years and aims to enhance the quality of life of survivors by preserving their reproductive endocrine capacity. The need for fertility preservation has to be weighed against morbidity and mortality associated with cancer. There is thus a need for a multidisciplinary collaboration between oncologists and reproductive specialists to improve the awareness and availability. Increasing the lifespan of cancer survivors due to early diagnosis and management and current trend of delaying childbearing has led to many cancer survivors who intend to have a child after cancer treatment, hence comes the role of oncofertility. Herein, we report a case of cancer breast who underwent in vitro fertilization at our center for fertility preservation.
