Chemotherapy and radiation, both these cancer treatments affect the uterus as well as the ovary and hence a great deal of planning and preparation is required when planning to go ahead with Oocyte preservation. There is no compromise in the ovarian reserve or the oocyte recovery rate before the cancer treatment. So, it is advisable to brief the patients and their families thoroughly about the entire procedure and its probable outcomes along with an IVF specialist. On similar lines, mortality due to cancer and morbidity are the two important factors considered before proceeding for fertility preservation.

Oocyte recovery rates are not compromised prior to cancer therapy, but ovarian reserve may be compromised in women who have undergone prior gonadotoxic therapy.
Oocyte preservation is possible in case of young female cancer survivors or unmarried women but not in girls who have not yet reached the puberty stage. The procedure involves ovarian stimulation and oocyte retrieval.
Timing and strategic planning of the procedure is very important. Controlled ovarian stimulation (COS) and oocyte retrieval (OR) have to be meticulously planned, provided there is a possibility of a good ovarian response. Factors such as completing the IVF procedure while delaying the cancer treatment need to be considered. Amidst all this planning, ovarian stimulation has to commence from day 2 of the menstrual cycle. Also, it is essential to mention that it is possible to collect a limited number of oocytes which in turn determines the number of attempts for pregnancy.
