Fertility Preservations: Implications, legalities and creating a future family

Our aims are to explore in an experiential environment the options available to the transgender community and the fertility counsellor’s role in supporting their journey. We will explore their journey through preservation to helping to create a family. We will explore the legalities involved in both treatment and storage.

• Fertility Preservations and options available •

• We will hear first hand the experience from a transgender patient The
