In brief: Yes

5-fu is a type of chemotherapy.
It can be given by iv, or in certain cases as a cream that the patient inserts into the vagina with an applicator. I'm not sure why it has been recommended to you, but it has side effects you should understand. Ask your doctor for more information. Good luck!
