Each person has a different response to treatment.
Because of the many factors affecting fertility, it is hard to
predict how treatment is going to affect you. Please know
that we will still be available for your questions during and
after treatment. We can also provide any referrals that you
may need for fertility preservation. The following are some
of the most commonly asked questions.
Reproductive Endocrinologists: Using your stored oocytes,
embryos or ovarian tissue requires the help of doctors
specially trained in the field of Assisted Reproduction.
If you are at high risk for infertility and complete fertility
preservation, there is a very good chance that you will
need to use a process called In Vitro Fertilization (IVF)
to conceive a child. A Reproductive Endocrinologist can
talk with you and you partner about this process and its
success rates. We can provide referrals.
How long do I need to wait after
treatment to try to have a child?
This is a good question to discuss with your treating
provider or fertility team. Once you stop therapy, the
harmful effects of treatment on an embryo are quickly
gone. However, pregnancy hormones may affect your
chance of cancer recurrence. Until you are given the ok
by your provider we recommend that you continue to use
condoms and female birth control.
Remember if you become pregnant, before you are cleared
by your provider, both you and your baby are at risk for
developing serious health problems related to the cancer
treatment.
» Your body may not be ready to carry a pregnancy.
» The radiation in surveillance scans can be harmful.
What about my fertility DURING
treatment?
You should always consider yourself fertile. During
treatment it is very important to always use condoms
and female birth control. Please remember that during
treatment your exposure to chemotherapy or radiation may
affect the health of the baby. If you are sexually active,
please talk to your team about safe sex.
What happens after cancer
treatment?
