The affect 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.

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.

Studies have highlighted the importance of having access to fertility-related information at a number of points through the cancer journey:

  • At the time of diagnosis

  • When making treatment decisions

  • After treatment finishes
