Hi to all of you!

It is the first time I write here even though I usually read this site a lot,because it has been helping me so much since my diagnosis.I am from Portugal,so sorry for my English😉.

I am 42 years old,had breast cancer 2 years and a half ago,relatively small lump,highly Er and Pr,Grade 1,ki 67 of 5%,negative nodes and no linfatic or vessels invasio were found.It was a Luminal A.I am married but have no children on my own(my husband has a 9 years old son)and I would like very much to have a baby,but I am too afraid to stop tamoxifen for a while and try to get pregnant.I fear recurrence so much!!My oncologist doesn't seem very concerned about me interrupting the pill and then get back to it after the baby is born,but I think all the studies available until now are not that reliable and all the comunity is waiting for the results of POSITIIVE study,but I will be on menopause at that time!

I never worried about children very much before,but my husband was so kind and supportive to me that I fell even more in love with him and started whishing having our baby together,even because that is something he would like very much too.

Anyone here like me,smashed between the fear of recurrence and the biologic clock?
