Is it possible to stay on tamoxifen while pregnant? If not, what other options are there?
Hi @mms411 and welcome to Connect.
Such a good question about the safety of taking tamoxifen or hormonal treatment while pregnant. There are a few research studies that looked at this very question.
– Use of Tamoxifen Before and During Pregnancy http://theoncologist.alphamedpress.org/content/16/11/1547.full
– Pausing Hormonal Therapy Treatment to Have a Child: The POSITIVE Trial (podcast) http://www.breastcancer.org/community/podcasts/pregnancy-20170404
Mms, are you planning to get pregnant? Have you talked about fertility with your oncologist?
