Abstract

Background: The lack of knowledge from healthcare providers regarding fertility preservation will certainly affect the patient’s knowledge, attitude, behavior, and also perspective. Obstetrics and Gynecology (OB/GYN) residents may most likely be the first line professionals to integrate fertility preservation technologies into their practice which plays an important task in giving an understanding of the relationship between age and fertility for patients. Objective: This study aims to assess OB/GYN resident knowledge and beliefs regarding age-related fertility decline, intentions, and religion aspect toward fertility preservation. Materials and Methods: A cross-sectional study was conducted on 92 Indonesian OB/GYN residents at the Cipto Mangunkusomo Hospital between November and December 2017. Data were collected using a questionnaire which had four sections, knowledge, attitude, intention, and religion aspect toward fertility preservation. Results: The majority of participants believed that an OB/GYN should encourage discussions about potential childbearing desires (96.74%) and age-related fertility decline (94.57%) with patients, of which 79.34% believed that these discussions should be part of a woman’s annual health examination. Cancer patients are likely to undergo oocyte cryopreservation than people who choose career as priority. From the religion aspect, fertility preservation options such as sperm, oocyte, embryo, and ovarian cortex cryopreservation were accepted by most residents with varied religions, while oocyte and sperm donor methods were unacceptable (48% and 57%, respectively) because of the belief that oocyte/sperm should only be given to legitimate partners, but many still do not know that oocyte and sperm donor were prohibited by all religions. Conclusion: Age-related fertility decline and frozen egg storage should be discussed during annual woman wellness examinations by OB/GYN specialists.
