This booklet is about breast cancer treatment and fertility. It describes how treatment for primary breast cancer may affect a woman’s fertility, and possible ways of preserving fertility. It also includes information about pregnancy after a diagnosis of breast cancer, and permanent infertility.
We have also developed a toolkit for healthcare professionals (BCC228)

Breast Cancer Care merged with Breast Cancer Now in April 2019. From October 2019 the new merged charity is called Breast Cancer Now. This edition is a revision of the former Breast Cancer Care booklet Fertility and breast cancer treatment.
Lots of our patient information will continue to appear under the legacy brand Breast Cancer Care until new editions are produced. Please be assured that, whether the information you order or download is branded as Breast Cancer Care or Breast Cancer Now, the quality remains the same.
