Cancer treatment can have an effect on your fertility. While the effects can vary depending on your cancer diagnosis and treatment, there are some practical information and resources that can help you

The effect cancer treatment can have on your fertility varies widely depending on your age, the type, stage and site of your cancer and the decisions you make during treatment.

It is often difficult to know how your fertility has been affected immediately after treatment. Research is constantly occurring in this field, and new techniques being developed.
