Abstract


With the greater advancements in field of cancer treatment, the survival rates have escalated remarkably, thus the need arising for the fertility preservation in the survivors with regards to oocyte/embryo/ovarian tissue cryopreservation has assumed great importance particularly for those receiving chemotherapy that too with alkylating agents. Furthermore, the need further is enhanced in younger adults along with adolescents diagnosed for cancer and need chemotherapy and are yet to attain puberty where it might not be feasible to do cryopreservation of oocytes. The aim of this short communication is to emphasize on the young cancer patients in whom a diagnosis of cancer is made and which patients stand a chance of generation of diminished ovarian reserve (DOR) who receive chemotherapy as well as the agents that justify evaluation of Antimullerian hormone (AMH) as well as other investigations required prior to initiation of chemotherapy.
