According to a Swedish study, women who are about to undergo cancer treatment are receiving less information about the effects treatment can have on their fertility. The study found that 80 percent of men surveyed said their doctor had told them their chemotherapy could affect their future fertility, but only 48 percent of women said the same.
A cancer diagnosis is a shock, and even if the doctor does talk to you about the effects of treatment, it may not register. If you, your partner, a family member or a friend has been diagnosed with cancer, FertilityAuthority has a Fertility Preservation section you can use as a resource, as well as success stories and articles specifically about cancer and fertility.
