      Hi! Yes, I was able to get pregnant after having chemo, radiation and a autologus bone marrow transplant. I had to use donor eggs because the treatments destroyed my own eggs. I also had to take an assortment of homone pills to replace the ones that I had lost. I am now the mom to beautiful twin girls! If you can, I would recommend getting some of your eggs frozen. That way in case anything should happen (which of course we hope won't) you'll still be able to have kids that are genetically yours.

      Congrats on having two beautiful girls! I couldn't have my eggs frozen. The doctor I met with wanted $10,000.00 to do it. I just was wondering because this year on my 25th Birthday I started to get chemo and I am worried now I wont be able to have children. My doctor said my chemo should not affect fertility and that I am equal to anyone else out there trying to have kids.
