Falling pregnant after having chemo
Has chemotherapy ruined my chances of becoming a mother?
I had chemo 4 years ago. My period stopped during it, but was back within a few months of finishing. I then got an IUD on my docs advise to help my body recover. I am now trying to conceive. Periods are regular, but could the chemo have affected the quality of my eggs? I am also close to 40, so that probably does not help either?- LTExpert advice
If you had chemotherapy, then there is a good chance that your ovaries are affected. I suggest you have some blood tests (FSH, LH, E2, AMH) at the beginning of your cycle done. That will tell whether there may be a problem or not. At age 40 it will also take a bit longer to fall pregnant.
