Cancer, Fertility and Me

This website has been developed for women with cancer. Cancer treatments may affect fertility and the chances of becoming pregnant in the future. It aims to help women think about the treatments which may help to preserve their fertility. It also aims to help women prepare to talk with their healthcare professionals, partner, family and friends about fertility preservation before cancer treatment starts. We hope this website will help you to make decisions that are best for you.

This patient decision aid accurately reflects recommendations in the NICE guidance on fertility problems and patient experience in adult NHS services. It also supports statements 4, 5 and 6 in the NICE quality standard for patient experience in adult NHS services, statement 7 in the quality standard for cancer services for children and young people, and statements 3 and 9 in the quality standard for fertility problems.
