Ghost or anyone: IVF and chemotherapy??

Postby rn2005 » Sat Jun 07, 2008 1:11 pm

Hi everyone!
I will be starting IVF at the end of June. I am an oncology nurse and give chemotherapy and I am VERY nervous about this! I cannot find much research about whether or not it is ok to give chemo while being pregnant or trying to get preggers! I tend to just not even want to mess with it since this has already been such a long and intense battle...I dont want anything to mess up my chances of concieving! Does anyone have suggestions or have been in this situation? GHOST: You are so wonderful here...thanks for all of your help!

Chemotherapy especially methotrexate is very toxic to a pregnancy, but if you double glove, gown and even mask, I don't see why you couldn't continue your job on your floor.
I am an infertility nurse and I work in a major IVF facility. I am willing to answer questions and give guidance, however, since I am not treating you, only your physician can give you the most accurate information.
