Fertility preservation has become a new field of reproductive medicine, with special concerns for young patients with cancer. While aiming to optimize cancer treatment, clinicians also need to be aware of the risk of adverse reproductive effects from radiotherapy, chemotherapy and surgery in women of reproductive age. Fertility preservation is mandatory in patients undergoing cancer treatment and all young patients should be informed regarding their options in this regard. Gynecological malignancies represent a special category in which the preservation of fertility is more difficult and challenging. Patients with a gynecological malignancy often require extensive surgery and hence the use of fertility sparing surgery remains debatable.
