Dear ?>

It is possible to have children after having chemotherapy for cancer. It all depends on which type of cancer you have, the type of chemotherapy that was used and the length of chemotherapy. If the chemotherapy has not destroyed ovarian function and if you have a good ovarian reserve then the chances are that you will be able to conceive a child. I would suggest you see a gynaecologist so that he can assess your fertility status by doing simple blood test to ascertain if ovarian function is still intact.
