Preservation of female fertility is a fairly new domain in medicine that has grown very rapidly in recent years. Initially, embryo freezing stayed the most effective technique. Later, cryopreservation of oocytes and ovarian tissue was regarded as a secure tool in human fertility preservation. Storage of cortical ovarian tissue is moreover suitable for children, prepubertal girls, and adult patients who cannot benefit from cryopreservation of oocytes.
A recent study analyzes and reviews the current and relevant scientific literature on medical and social reasons for the preservation of fertility, by conducting a review based on articles identified from PubMed databases.
The observations from the study are as follows-
Thus this study believes Oocyte vitrification to be the gold standard technique for preserving fertility in young women.
