When you ovulate: Once you start ovulating and having periods, it's possible for you to get pregnant. It might take some time after chemotherapy to regain normal cycles, and it depends on the type of chemotherapy you received. Some chemotherapy makes you infertile, and hopefully your doctor discussed this with you. For more info: www.Fertilehope.Org.

It depends: Ask your oncologist, they can guide you further. Most patients wait for 2-3 years , minimum...Simply because you want to be sure that your cancer is controlled for the long haul and not come back and make it tough to raise the child.
