Sorry you had to join us here. I don't your diagnosis details in terms of stages. But I personally listen to my oncologist rather than gyno. Did you do any egg retrieval before you started chemo?
It is a rather difficult decision. The child would not have any more increased risk than any other IVF born child. Did you do any genetic testing?
Hope you and your husband come to a decision that you both are comfortable with.
