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.

Depends: I am an oncologist. Getting pregnant after breast cancer has to depend on so many things like what surgey u had, will u get chemo etc. Pls provide those details and will be happy to help u.

Can I get my breasts checked for breast cancer while i'm pregnant?

Yes: Traditional tests used to diagnose breast cancer are all available during pregnancy, including mammograms, ultrasound, mri, and biopsies. While it is best to avoid radiation exposure during pregnancy, shielding the abdomen during a mammogram is effective. If you are pregnant and find a new lump in your breast, it is important to notify your doctor rather than wait till after you deliver.

Pregnancy/breast ca: Fullterm or live birth age 30 or younger is somewhat protective for breast cancer; nursing the baby for over 6+ months is also protective; notice i said protective no "preventative".
