Hi ladies

Does anyone know the standard scans that should be done in case you want to take a tamoxifen break to get pregnant?

I just reached 3,5 years of tamoxifen and I will pause it to try to get pregnant.Me and my oncologist have been talking about this for a long time and it's now or never.

What I don't know is if he will request any other scans.I just did mamogramm and ultrasound last week and everything was clear😊,but I don't know if there are any other scans recommended before pregnancy.

I guess it depends on the oncologist and my appointment is only on the 30 of June.

At the time of diagnosis I had a mamogramm,ultrasound,MRI and CT scan to abdomen,lungs,liver and pelvis and it was all clear.

Thank you ladies
