Causes of infertility are varied. One population at risk for infertility is individuals treated for cancer with chemotherapy and/or radiation. Although these treatments have improved survival rates, they also impair reproductive abilities. Increased survival rates, coupled with delayed childbirth, have increased the need for fertility counseling prior to cancer treatment.
