Susan we have a lot in common. I did have breast cancer, stage IIA, diagnosed at 30. I was strongly ER/PR+ which is good. As for the risk of cancer recurrance with pregnancy, I have heard of women who went on to have normal pregnancies and remained cancer free, and I know of 2 people who were ER/PR negative (so the hormones should not have been a factor) who had recurrances after the pregnancy and are stage IV. My onc and rad onc had said that there is no reason I could not try to get PG, and that the jury was still out on the risk of PG after BC.
They also say that after ending Tamox, you have to wait 3 months to try and conceive.
In my case, I was single not even looking at pregnancy, so Tamox was never not an option. I am now in a relationship and we have talked about
children, but I am not yet married so again, any pregnancy is in the future still for me.
And my friend who was 40 when she conceived did so very easily, so it is not always hard to do at the "older" age.
Some do consider the risk of blood clots and uterine cancer as a deterrant, and some have had problems with thickening of the uterus, but I was told that the benefits far outweigh the risks for me. It is individual though, and no one can say what you should do.
And my Dad made the same comment too once, that he;d rather have me than an unborn grandchild at this time.
Johns Hopkins has an ask the expert website, you may get more info there. You send in the question, include as much info as possible, and then they will respond within a few hours.
Keep talking it out and go with your heart...
