Cancer survivors with a history of gonadotoxic treatment are at risk for future infertility and experience significant fertility-related concerns and distress, yet the majority of these patients are unaware of their fertility status.
Little is known regarding factors that influence survivors’ interest in a fertility status assessment (i.e., semen analysis for males, formal consultation with a reproductive specialist for females) during emerging adulthood, a developmental period ripe for family planning. The purpose of this study was to describe the proportion of, and factors associated with, interest in a fertility status assessment among male and female cancer survivors.
