Can I have children after chemotherapy treatment?

By Zaira Salvador.
Last Update: 03/13/2019

Yes, but depending on whether the semen has been cryopreserved or not, it will be more or less complicated to get pregnant.

Those men who have a good sample of frozen semen may have children through artificial insemination or in vitro fertilization treatment as the case may be.

On the other hand, if the patient did not have frozen semen, it will be necessary to confirm whether or not they have testicular function. Occasionally, it is possible to recover sperm through microsurgery or puncture of the testicle.
