Menopause is a critical age in a woman’s life when menstruation stops and is associated with loss of fertility. Deprivation of female hormones, especially estrogen, may be associated with some physical and psychological disorders that greatly affect the quality of life not only for women but also for men and all family members. Therefore, it is important to discuss the possibility of using cryopreservation to postpone menopause in order to alleviate the menopause-associated disorders and ensure better healthy lives for women and societies. Ovarian tissue cryopreservation has been used successfully to save the harvested ovary from damage that may result from chemotherapy or radiotherapy used to treat cancer cases. Therefore, we suggest cryopreservation of ovarian samples during reproductive age and re-implantation when needed to postpone the onset of menopause. This may save the resected ovarian tissue from degeneration or consumption that occurs naturally within the human body. This possibility can be verified by prospective studies in volunteers aimed at preserving the endocrine function of the ovaries for as long as possible.
