Cancer is scary and being a cancer survivor comes with a lot of trauma on its own. Often times a lot of you who are looking to get away from the past traumatic experience attempt to start a family. A family will bring you joy and happiness and peace; however a lot of you may be worried that the cancer that you’ve already defeated may prevent you from starting and raising a family.
This is a difficult situation, the hard truth is that there are certain types and treatments of cancer that may cause you to be infertile, and however, the only way to know is to get yourself checked out by a trained physician, you can schedule a visit with us so as to get an accurate picture.
However, even if the cancer has left you infertile, that is by no means the end of the road. Here are a few of the ways you can start or expand your family even if cancer or its treatment has made you infertile.
