Recently I had mastectomy done. Before step into chemo I would consider to freeze embroys to reserve the option to have another child later on (I have one 2yo already). I am at my early thirties.
Has anyone been through same, success or unsuccess story to share.
I haven't had to harvest eggs either ... due to being too old to worry about that sort of thing. I wish you luck in your decision and hope you find out some good information. I experienced temporary infertility and was told I would go through menopause but I havent even started yet. I was kind of hoping to get it all out of the way in one foul swoop.
Hi there. I'm sorry that you have to make this decision. Have your Doctors swayed you either way? I know there is a very real chance that you could lose your fertility, and if you definately want a sibling for you child, or are even unsure, I would probably suggest that you do harvest eggs. Obviously, you could try naturally down the track and if nothing happens in say, 12 months, then you will have those eggs to fall back on.
My husband and I were very lucky. He was told he would never be able to have children from quite a number of procedures (including a massive dose of chemo as a child) and we conceived our precious little son after about 3 years and our 2nd child after about 3 months. So, there is always hope but are you prepared to take the possible risks? Only you can answer that.
Cancer Council NSW would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we live and work.We would also like to pay respect to elders past and present and extend that respect to all other Aboriginal people.
