    Pregnancy after Breast Cancer?

    Has anyone gotten pregnant after Chemo for Breast Cancer (or had eggs harvested?). I'm over 40 and don't have kids. As my periods appeared to have made a comeback, I'm wondering if I still have the option to have a child.

      That's a good question. Not having gone through what you are going through I couldn't answer that, but maybe someone on the board has. I always say when in doubt talk to your doctor. They are the best source of knowledge for you and your particular problem.

      I use to work with someone whose wife had breast cancer in her early 20s She did not harvest her eggs and they had two children, the first was born about 6 years after her treatment ended, and was conceived naturally. Your best bet is to talk with a fertility expert about what your options are. Age may be more of a factor then the fact that you were treated for for breast cancer.
