Will I Be Able To Get Pregnant After Chemotherapy Treatment For Breast Cancer?

Question: Will I be able to get pregnant after chemotherapy treatment for breast cancer?

Answer: For women who have received chemotherapy and their menstrual cycles return back to normal, they are able to have children without any problems. And their rate of being able to have that child is very similar to women who have not had chemotherapy, as well as their menstrual cycle is functioning normally.

In terms of whether or not a pregnancy after breast cancer has harmful effects for the patient, we have not seen that, and our patients who have had a subsequent pregnancy outcome is the same as women who elect not to get pregnant after breast cancer.
