Questions you need to ask2017-05-17T11:42:42+10:00

Consider asking your doctor or treating specialist the following questions before treatment begins:

  • What is the risk of infertility from each treatment option for my type, stage, and grade of cancer? Are there any other treatments with a lower risk that are equally effective?
  • What options do I have to preserve my fertility?
  • Will any of these options delay treatment? If so, how does this affect my chance of recovery?
  • Will any of the methods to preserve fertility make my cancer treatment(s) less effective?
  • Do any of the options to preserve fertility increase the risk that the cancer may come back?
  • Should I talk with a doctor who specializes in fertility before starting treatment?
  • What clinical trials are available to me?
  • Where can I find support for coping with fertility issues?
  • Whom can I contact if I need help talking with my spouse or partner about fertility issues?
  • How will I know if I am fertile after cancer treatment?
