Fertility: Home

Many cancer treatments and some types of cancer can cause sexual and fertility-related side effects. The type of treatment you receive, your age at time of treatment, and how long it has been since you had treatment can impact your fertility. It is important to learn how the treatment recommended for you may affect your fertility before you start treatment. Talk to your healthcare providers if you have questions or concerns.
