Fertility preservation for young lymphoma patients

Chemotherapy and radiotherapy for the treatment of lymphoma can also affect fertility.  

For many it is the last thing you want to think about when diagnosed with lymphoma, however it is important to discuss fertility with a specialist to know your options and understand the long term effects from your treatment.  

Donna Gairns, Lymphoma Australia's Nurse, recently interviewed A/Prof Kate Stern, a leading Australian fertility preservation specialist at Melbourne IVF and The Women's Hospital, who presented on what is fertility preservation and the options available for females and males.

The video presentation below will hopefully help you understand what is fertility preservation and what is the right decision for you.
