Fertility  preservation  is  a  rapidly  expanding  interdisciplinary  field,  with  new  technologies  available in the last few years and increasing press coverage. The topic of fertility preservation for  the  pediatric  population  is  especially  crucial  for  appropriate  healthcare  providers  to  understand  in order to maximize timely access to care for patients. This review will compile the most recent practice  guidelines  on  fertility  preservation  from  multiple  clinical  societies,  as  well  as  highlight considerations specific to pediatric patients undergoing fertility preservation prior to treatment for malignancies or gender-affirming therapies.
