Dr. Teresa Woodruff, Director of the Institute for Women's Health Research at Northwestern, and her colleagues have just released their second book on oncofertility.    Oncofertility is a new field of study named by Dr. Woodruff who is a leader in the study of fertility preservation in women who have lost their fertility due to cancer therapies and other conditions that threaten their ability to conceive and bear children.  The issue of fertility preservation is of particular concern to young breast cancer survivors and their health care team.   To learn more about this book and where to find it read below.

The Oncofertility Consortium® is pleased to announce that the second volume of its Oncofertility series is now available on Amazon.com!

Fertility preservation is an emerging field not only in the basic and clinical sciences, but also in the social sciences and humanities.  Oncofertility: Ethical, Legal, Social, and Medical Perspectives offers insights by experts and scholars in bioethics, philosophy, religion, communication, and history, who tackled questions such as,
“What are the Jewish, Muslim, and Catholic perspectives on oncofertility?”
“What barriers to adoption do couples with a history of cancer face?”
“What decisionmaking processes do families undergo when considering fertility preservation?”

Purchase your copy of this one-of-a-kind book to discover the answers to these questions and to learn more!

As a multi-institutional project to assess the impact of cancer and its treatment on reproductive health, I think the work of oncofertility consortium is unparalled.

This is a fascinating field that offers promise and hope of having children to women who have lost their natural ability to do so due to cancer or other reproductive conditions. Please keep up the research!

I've just grab the book on Amazon, got the kindle version (a bit cheaper) It's a fantastic read as it does tackle many related fields. A Must have !

A very interesting study. I didn’t know that cancer treatments increased <a>infertility</a>. I just hope that this blog will help women and allow them to be informed about this study.
