For transgender people who are interested in medically transitioning to affirm their gender, fertility preservation is an option to consider. In this situation, it is important for patients to understand that they can optimize their family building options before they begin their transition.
For transgender people who are Female Assigned At Birth (FAAB), it would be important to cryopreserve eggs for potential future use prior to undergoing surgical procedures that may inhibit reproductive ability. For transgender people who are Male Assigned At Birth (MAAB), prior to any hormonal or surgical procedures that may inhibit reproductive ability, it would be important to cryopreserve sperm specimens.
