Hi friends1! Welcome to Breastcancer.org. You have found a great place for information and a place to learn, share and vent.

Until you get responses from other members here, you may find interesting to read the article Fertility After Chemotherapy. Also great information on Lupron and Faslodex and its related side effects.

Hope this helps!
