fertility preservation

The Utah Center for Reproductive Medicine’s Fertility Preservation Program delivers hope to men and women facing life’s difficult health challenges, allowing them to preserve their reproductive potential prior to treatments that might impact their fertility.

Our program was developed to assist patients diagnosed with cancer to preserve fertility prior to chemotherapy, radiation therapy, or surgery. The program also benefits women who elect to preserve fertility to delay child bearing until the time is right for that individual or family.

For patients diagnosed with Cancer:

Prior to undergoing cancer treatment, the UCRM team is available to discuss options. Our team will communicate with each patient’s oncologist in order to create the best comprehensive plan. Our goal is to be a fertility preservation resource for patients and health care professionals and to provide up-to-date information on the latest advances in the field.

UCRM partners with Fertile Hope (www.fertilehope.org) to offer special financial assistance for their fertility preservation treatment.
