Realizing the dream of having a child after cancer

For men and women who had cancer or have it now, VCU Health’s fertility specialists are ready to explore your choice to have a baby. We’ll apply our training and research to do whatever we can to help you realize this important dream.

Our team of compassionate fertility experts can work together with your cancer care team before, during or after cancer treatment. Our cutting-edge work and experience include:

  • Fertility counseling and testing for mom and dad, so you understand your options
  • “Emergency” fertility treatments before you begin radiation or chemotherapy
  • Freezing and storing the man’s sperm to be used at a later time (sperm cryopreservation)
  • Gynecology care after cancer treatments
