Tamoxifen and pregnancy

Posted by mms411 @mms411, Jun 7, 2018

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.

Mms, are you planning to get pregnant? Have you talked about fertility with your oncologist?
