According to the draft law of the TSVG of 01.05.2019, patients of reproductive age are entitled to fertility protection counselling prior to gonadotoxic therapy.
The FertiPROTEKT Netzwerk e.V. unites centres in the German-speaking countries (Germany, Switzerland and Austria) in order to guarantee timely and competent counselling as comprehensively as possible. The member centres have committed themselves to providing all therapy options, either alone or through appropriate cooperation, so that individual treatment can be realised.
Detailed explanations of different diseases and fertility-protective measures as well as a bibliography can be found in the FertiPROTEKT book “Indication and implementation of fertility-protective measures in oncological and non-oncological diseases”, 2nd revised edition 2020, which was written by members of the FertiPROTEKT Netzwerk e.V. and is available free of charge.
Please remember to include a document with details of the underlying disease, the time of the planned start of therapy and the planned gonadotoxic therapy when referring patients to a centre, in accordance with legal requirements.
