"For decades, donor sperm treatment is offered to men and women to build a family. In daily life, parents, children and donors have to deal with the consequences of this treatment. The studies of this thesis show that there are gaps in knowledge about specialist psychosocial counselling and guidance for parents, donors and children. Psychosocial counselling and guidance are not available for all parties involved, insufficiently meet the needs in case of accessibility, and is not evidence-based. Counselling and guidance are of value for all (intended) parents when they have questions about when and how to disclose donor-conception to their child, about the position of the social parent and when a child want to seek contact with the donor. Counselling for sperm-donors is of value before registering as a donor, after childbirth and at the time children seek contact. Counselling for donor-children is of value when they wish information and guidance and when they think about contact with their donor. With this thesis we aim to make a step forward in the direction of evidence-based psychosocial counselling for all men and women who need a sperm-donor to build a family and to stimulate specialist training for counsellors. In the Netherlands, more unity is needed in the accessibility of counselling in the clinics, and the development of a National Informationpoint Donorconception. In addition, more research is needed about psychosocial implications of openness about donor-conception for children and parents, about experiences of contact between donor-children and sperm-donors and experiences about non-genetic parenthood."--Samenvatting auteur.

This unique book provides expert advice on all the different aspects related to fertility preservation for age related infertility. Although, there is a lot of information available on the Internet and in books about fertility preservation for cancer treatment, little information is available for young women that are confronted with a ticking biological clock. While men have been able to cryopreserve sperm since the 1950s, women have only recently gained the opportunity to preserve their gametes through the egg vitrification technique. Therefore, many women confronted with a risk of imminent fertility loss, such as chemotherapy, are now freezing their oocytes instead of embryos. Successful oocyte cryopreservation offers them a reproductive autonomy independent of men. Moreover, it now enables single women to preserve their reproductive chances. The most important threat for female fertility is ovarian aging as it causes a progressive decline in the reproductive chances. The general trend to delay motherhood due to societal changes confronts many women and couples with a diminished fertility. This fertility problem can often not be cured by in vitro fertilization, which makes that an increasing number of women require oocyte donation as the treatment of last resort. In the last few years, fertility centres around the world have started to offer the opportunity cryopreserve oocytes to young, often highly educated, single women. This patient population is unique as compared to other patients in the fertility clinic as they perform a preventive treatment. They are neither confronted with infertility nor are they undergoing a treatment that might cause an imminent treat to their fertility.
