ONCOFERTILITY

Fertility preservation isn't always possible for oncology patients, but it's our goal for you to at least have a conversation with your oncologist about your options. We partner with LIVESTRONG to help cover costs. 

ONCOFERTILITY

In the days following a life-changing diagnosis, you'll likely make many difficult decisions regarding your immediate medical needs. We at Audubon Fertility are here to focus on your life after cancer. All too often treatment is pursued without even having a conversation regarding fertility options, and we hope to change that. 

 

It's important to talk with your oncologist as soon as possible about your fertility preservation options, which will depend on your specific type of cancer and treatment recommended. If you receive approval, call us as soon as possible following diagnosis and we can begin immediately and usually have you back to your oncologist in 3 weeks or less. 

 

We'll make your fertility needs our top priority. We'll set up an appointment with Dr. Wells within two business days and then set-up an expedited fertility preservation plan, with minimal disruption to your oncologist’s treatment schedule.

 

If you've already begun or completed cancer treatment, we may still be able to offer effective fertility preservation options--just call our office to set-up a consult.
