Egg freezing is an important new development in our field. It can help young women with cancer to preserve their fertility prior to beginning cancer treatment. It can help single women and women not yet ready to start a family preserve their eggs while they are still of high quality. Egg freezing can also make the use of donor eggs simpler than ever before. Donor egg recipients no longer have to wait for their donor to go through stimulation for the eggs – they are already frozen in the bank!

The fallopian tube connects the uterine cavity to the ovary and is a rather complex functional structure. Infection, prior pelvic surgery or endometriosis can easily cause a fallopian tube blockage or interfere with the complex function of the tube. At times, this occurs without the patient having any symptoms. Tubal factors account for approximately 25% of infertility.
