Need more info: You need to consult with your oncologist and obstetrician. It depends on your stage of breast cancer and how well you have responded to treatment.

It will also depend on the presence or absence of adjuvant endocrine therapy, ie tamoxifen etc.

No clear evidence.: Know the hormone status of your tumor and see a medical oncologist. After completing all cancer treatments a wait of at least 6 months seems to be a minimum.
