Hi sisters,

Just wanted to find out how many of us are in our 30s.

Do you have husbands and families? I found that aspect particularly hard while I was doing my chemo- keeping up with the needs of everybody else while I was doing my treatments.

Now I'm in the radiation portion and school will be starting in about 10 days... yay!

Say hello if you have a moment!

Hi ladies! First things first, I am a year and a half out from diagnosis, just over a year since treatments ended and I am doing so well!! Diagnosed at 33, with a 1.5 year old. For any new ladies here, you got this! You will get through this chapter!

Question for those who have been here a while. Thinking about baby #2. Anyone go on to have another baby after treatments were done? How long did your doctor ask for you to wait? Anyone on tamoxifen and allowed to take a break to have a baby?

I would love to have another child and hope it can happen before I much older!

SLL101984- Hi! I was on tamoxifen for 2 years and then took a 'baby break'. Although my fertility numbers were bad we managed to get pregnant naturally twice (first pregnancy was a miscarriage at 10 weeks). Back on tamoxifen 8 weeks postpartum. Good luck! Our kids are almost 7 years apart and still have an amazing bond.

Thank you. I can't even imagine going through this with children. I've always wanted to be a mother and this situation just puts an additional stressor on me to find a man by like tomorrow lol. It seems like 34 is the magic number here.

Blackrose congrats on the baby.

Ajminn I think we can all definitely agree with you. It's not something any woman should have to go through let alone at such a young age. I'm sorry that we're all here but it's nice to know we're not alone.

Praying for all of you ladies still going through treatment/surgeries. Hope everyone is okay :)

Also 34 when I was diagnosed. 2 weeks exactly from my birthday. Just finished treatment in January, had my exchange last week and going to start radiation in a few weeks. Feel less terrified each day, but still pretty anxious about what the future holds for me. Hopefully it is filled with a child or two! Hugs to you all. x
