Cervical cancer affects a high percentage of young women worldwide. The incidence in developed countries is falling as a result of cervical cancer screening and immunization against human papillomavirus (HPV). Treatment of uterine cancer affects female fertility in various ways. In the counselling process for fertility preservation, obstetric complications, which include miscarriage and premature birth, as well as oncological safety must be considered. Mainly fertility-sparing surgical techniques such as cervical conisation or radical trachelectomy, and preservation of the ovaries are options in cancer stages up to FIGO IB1 and FIGO IIA1 < 2 cm without further risk factors. Fertility preservation methods in combination with surrogate pregnancy or uterus transplantation are experimental and controversial issues.
