It is usually radiotherapy that affects eggs, not chemotherapy, though it would depend on what drugs you were given. It would also depend what the underlying problem was. For example, women with breast cancer are more prone to have recurrences in pregnancy. Your chances of pregnancy over 40 years are markedly diminished, irrespective of the chemotherapy.
