Hi...back again with another question! I was on Cytoxin treatments from 4/06-3/07. It worked wonders for me and I have not had any serious flare up's since then. Has anyone ever had problems concieving after Cytoxin? Thanks...Andrea:hehe:

I have no personal experience in the matter - but if you are having regular menstrual cycles then chances are very good that you will have no trouble conceiving due to effects of Cytoxan. The older you are when you get the Cytoxan, the more likely the drug will shut down your ovaries permanently, but if resume or maintain regular cycles while on the drug then you should have no problems.

Good luck - hope we get a news update soon if you're trying! :)

Hi there. I just thought I'd let you know that I managed to conceive within a few months of completing 6 months of Cytoxan. I went on to have a healthy baby girl! I know everyone is different but I thought you would like to know.

Kind Regards
Louise

I had Cytoxan 6 months out of the year for the last two years. I am 5 months pregnant now. I was also on Lupron while I received the Cytoxan.. it is a shot that is supposed to help protect your ovaries from becoming sterile.
