The preservation of fertility began to develop after observing that the treatments used against cancer, both chemotherapy and radiotherapy produced sterility as a side effect in a not inconsiderable percentage. The infertility associated with oncological treatments was an adverse effect that was not important next to the serious health problem presented by the patients. That is, it was “the least”. Fortunately, this fact has changed and most doctors are aware of the importance of fertility for a young patient who has not had children or who has not completed her offspring.
