How I received information about my fertility preservation options

I didn’t find out about fertility options from my oncologist because I actually didn’t give him a chance to present them to me. Luckily, my husband and I are both health care providers and we knew—it was our vigilance to consider the effects of chemotherapy on our ability to conceive in the future. So we took it upon ourselves to do all the research even before we saw our oncologist.
And we also went to see a fertility specialist before we even saw our oncologist, we ended up calling a fertility specialist and that same day, she saw us for free and gave us some great recommendations which we were really grateful about, because our insurance at the time would not allow us to see a fertility specialist within the time-frame necessary before chemotherapy started.
