Coping With the Effects of Ovarian Cancer on Fertility

Because the options for some women to have children after ovarian cancer may be too expensive or seem too daunting, it may be a good idea to find a counselor or someone you can talk to about your situation. There are also many support groups available for those dealing with infertility due to cancer treatment, as well as groups who are considering adoption or surrogacy.
Although you may be discouraged if you have ovarian cancer before you have children, options are available. Talking to your healthcare providers and cancer care team can help you determine the best option for your particular situation.
