I am 23 years old and I want to have children really bad!! I had Hodgkin's Lymphoma the treatment I had was ABVD (Adriamycin, Bleomycin, Vinblastine, DTIC) I had 16 cycles? I was wondering how long after treatment can we try to have a baby?
The following information should not replace the assessment and advice you have been receiving from your physician (cancer specialist, obstetrician, or any other healthcare provider). It is offered for your information only. Consult your physician. The adverse effects of these drugs are only when the fetus is exposed to them. Several months after use, levels in the blood are zero. Unless the drugs affected fertility, there is no reason for concern regarding the drugs once blood levels reach zero.
