Gynaecologists are seeing an ever-growing population of cancer survivors who are at risk from developing a broad range of adverse outcomes relating to cancer treatment. This review discusses the most commonly observed reproductive concerns in young people who are awaiting, or have undergone treatment for cancer. We also discuss the options for maintaining fertility in both men and women, and possible subsequent pregnancy outcomes. The fertility preservation options available to any particular cancer survivor will depend on age at the time of diagnosis and treatment, the cancer type and primary site, the stage and the type of treatment.
