If you have a desire to have children after a successful recovery from cancer, there are different options to (help you) fulfil it. If you are in that situation, remember you can count on the Oncofertility team and the entire CRG team of UZ Brussel to guide and help you throughout the process.The options you have depend on your personal (health) situation.Feel free to contact the Oncofertility coordinator for more information. She will organise an appointment with the CRG doctor, if needed. After the consultation we can anticipate your chances of getting pregnant by means of a few tests. For information about these tests, see 'Cancer treatment is over'.We would like to mention here that the transplantation of ovarian tissue has so far resulted in the birth of more than thirty children.Unfortunately, science has not come this far with prepubertal testicular tissue. That is why no information is available about testicular stem cell transplantation or in vitro maturation of testicular stem cells under 'Treatments with banked material'.However, science is always in motion. The results of the research conducted in this field are promising. Despite the experimental nature of the study, when your fertility is at peril due to cancer treatment, it is worth considering to have testicular tissue cryopreserved for the future.Finally, if you are trying to get pregnant, there are a few measures you can take to promote your chances of success and the birth of a healthy baby. These include cessation of smoking, restriction of alcohol intake, avoidance of being overweight and (for women) folic acid intake. The latter is important for the development of the foetus and can be bought over the counter.Read more on the CRG website under Lifestyle and Folic acid.
