I am just waiting for my BCN to return my message about this. I have been in a peri-menopause for 4 years now and i'm under a fertility expert about it. I'll see what the nurse says. I have a follow up appointment with a fertility doc end of this month so i'll mentioning it.
It's such an emotive issue for me, i almost wish i never saw these articles!
Thanks for the replies. Took me a while to find the thread!!!

Might have some application in the future for BC ladies with a very early menopause. Not at the moment.
Hi Dancing Queen, I hope that someone comes along soon who can answer your question. I do know that some youngr women are able to get pregant after chemo and have happy, healthy babies, but many remain unable to do so.
