Fertility Preservation 

Welcome to the section dedicated to the Special Interest Group ‘Fertility Preservation’. We are a new SIG, established in early 2017. Here you can read more about us, and our activities.

Fields of interest

With the recent development of new techniques young men and women and even children with cancer or other life-threatening diseases now have an option to preserve their potential fertility, which is otherwise threatened by the treatment or by the disease itself.
The scope of the SIG will include FP in women, men and children with malignant and other serious diseases, in transgender individuals, and FP for non-medical reasons.

Mission of the SIG Fertility Preservation

  • to create a forum within ESHRE for professionals interested in FP
  • to support and promote research within the field
  • to support collaboration between different European countries and with relevant professional bodies and Societies


The SIG FP aims to provide education through ESHRE Precongress Courses and Campus Workshops, often in collaboration with other SIGs. We also contribute to the programme of the main ESHRE annual meeting, and to abstract reviewing for that meeting.
