Motherhood has always been a dream for all women around the world, and children remain the adornment and joy of homes. Can a woman who has survived breast cancer achieve this dream?
The results of recent studies confirmed that a woman who has recovered from breast cancer can become pregnant and give birth like other healthy women. 39 studies were conducted on 8,093,401 women, of whom 112,840 were diagnosed with breast cancer. After being diagnosed, 7,505 women became pregnant.
The results of the studies indicated the following:
Breast cancer reduces the risk of pregnancy by 35%, compared to 60% for women with cervical cancer.
For miscarriage problems, birth defects, preeclampsia, and postpartum bleeding, there is no difference between their occurrence in women who have survived breast cancer or in normal women who have not had cancer.
Breast cancer may increase some of the following risks:
- Low birth weight of the fetus.
- Premature birth.
- Caesarean delivery.
At the end of the study, the final results indicate the possibility of a woman recovering from breast cancer getting pregnant, and she can receive the necessary medical advice about it.
