How does treatment affect fertility?
Some cancer treatments can reduce your fertility. This can make it difficult or impossible to get pregnant (women) or father a child (men).
Before starting radiation therapy treatment, talk to your doctor, nurse or radiation therapist about:
- How your treatment may affect your fertility.
- Whether you want to have children in the future.
- Fertility sparing options that may be available to you and/or your partner.
Your doctor may refer you to a fertility specialist.
