Really curious to know if any women got pregnant in their 40's after going through breast cancer treatments in their mid to late 30's and up? I'm having crazy ideas! Looking for women that had their period return after chemopause and got pregnant with their own eggs or women that got pregnant via an egg donor. Wondering just HOW CRAZY my thoughts and ideas are...

I'm thinking about embryo adoption. I don't expect to get my own eggs back into production but from what I understand being implanted with a donated embryo (from a couple who had leftovers after going through IVF) has a better success rate. I need to consult with a fertility doc

I am 35, but I was able to get pregnant after chemo. I had Taxol, Herceptin, AC in 2013. I was at stage 3 at that time but went into remission. Fast forward to March 2015, found out I was pregnant, we were only trying for a month! I gave birth to a beautiful, healthy baby girl November 2015. Unfortunately I found out my cancer came back and is spread to bones and lungs. So I am on the roller coaster again. But I am so grateful for my baby girl. It is possible!
