How Ovarian Cancer Affects Fertility

How Ovarian Cancer Affects Fertility

More than 20,000 women in the United States are diagnosed with ovarian cancer each year. If you or someone you know is diagnosed with ovarian cancer in their child-bearing years, it can be particularly devastating, but it doesn’t mean that you dreams of conceiving a child are over.

The ovaries are an essential part of the female reproductive system. They produce eggs for fertilization, as well as female hormones which are crucial for reproduction. An abnormal growth of cells in one or both the ovaries is what leads to ovarian cancer. Women only need one healthy ovary to become pregnant. So if your ovarian cancer is less aggressive and only affects one of your ovaries, you still have a chance of getting pregnant following your cancer treatment.

Cancer treatments, such as chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and some surgeries may harm or destroy a woman’s eggs or cause temporary or permanent fertility problems. However, there are ways to preserve your fertility so you can become pregnant after your cancer treatment. Read more here about our cancer fertility preservation options and cost. www.repromedfertility.com/cancer-fertility-preservation/. If you have been diagnosed with ovarian cancer, don’t lose hope; visit your doctor to learn about your options of becoming pregnant after treatment.
