Leukemia is one of the most common types of cancer in young people, with 5-year survival rates ranging from 54% to 94%. Due to gonadotoxic treatment, the chances of subsequent pregnancies in leukemia survivors are generally low. To date, several methods for fertility preservation have been presented, but options for this patient group remain limited. A multidisciplinary oncofertility approach with tight coordination between hemato-oncologists and reproductive specialists is critical for maintaining a high standard of oncofertility care to increase chances for fertility preservation in females with leukemia.
