A growing majority of women in the western hemisphere have been delaying initiation of childbearing to later in life. Consequently, more than ever before, women in their late 30s to early 40s are attempting their first pregnancy. Since the incidence of most cancers increases with age, delayed childbearing results in more female cancer survivors interested in fertility preservation. Fertility Preservation in Females: Emerging Technologies and Clinical Applications contains a selection of the valuable chapters and protocols of Seli and Agarwal’s previously published hardcover text Fertility Preservation: Emerging Technologies and Clinical Applications. Newly available in this convenient and affordable softcover format, this unique and practical reference guide for reproductive endocrinologists, gynecologists, embryologists, reproductive scientists, and oncologists provides strategies for fertility preservation in women, using a format that combines concise scientific background with practical methodological information and easy-to-grasp algorithms.
