As the infertility treatment outcomes are age dependant there is a short window of time in many patients which should not be lost in waiting for better times. Also patients undergoing oncology treatments and who are to be given gametotoxic drugs need urgent attention for preserving their gametes The time has come when fertility services should be reopened for infertile couples considering the psychosocial impact infertility has especially for females.
