Abstract

The need for practice guidelines for fertility preservation in young women with hematological malignancies has been increased. To develop recommendations, publications relevant to fertility preservation and hematological cancers were identified through a PubMed database search and reviewed systematically, focusing on the effects of oncological treatments on fertility as well as on the efficacy, feasibility and risks of existing fertility preservation methods.
