I’m totally on the fence. I did 2 years before getting pregnant and am not sure I am am done having kids. We have a 6 year old and a 6 month old. My onco wants me back on tamoxifen plus ovarian suppressant soon. I figured I would go back on at some point. I’m almost 37 though and feel like maybe I should make sure I’m done having kids before committing to it rather than doing another year or 2 on T and quitting again. Any experiences or words of wisdom are appreciated.
