Oncofertility Clinic

Many people who have had cancer wish to have children in the future. Sometimes the treatments that are used to fight cancer (chemotherapy, radiation, surgery) can have negative effects on fertility.  Fortunately, there are options for men and women to preserve their fertility before treatment. MD Anderson has partnered with the Division of Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility at Baylor College of Medicine to provide fertility assessment, planning, and preservation. 

The Oncofertility Clinic provides rapid, streamlined access to fertility services for our reproductive-age patients with cancer.  We offer:

  • Fertility education and counseling prior to cancer treatment
  • Assessment of fertility status
  • Fertility preservation options including egg freezing, embryo freezing, ovarian tissue freezing and sperm banking
  • Assistance with trying to conceive after cancer treatment
  • Exploration of alternative options for family building, including donor egg, donor sperm and adoption
  • Referral to psychological and financial support services
  • Collaboration and communication with your oncologist

We understand that making a decision about preserving fertility is a process and we are here to support you along the way.

Who is Eligible for Oncofertility Services? 

  • Men or women of reproductive age who want to preserve their fertility
  • MD Anderson cancer patients at any stage: diagnosis, active treatment and survivors

Referrals

The Oncofertility Clinic accepts MD Anderson patients only, and a referral from an MD Anderson physician is required. To schedule a consultation, request a referral from your primary MD Anderson physician.
