How long my husband and I need to wait to see if his sperm was damage with the chemotherapy? Reading the information about the chemo we should not try to have a baby while he is in chemotherapy, but my question is: When he is in break we can try??? Thank you for any comment.

I am the parent of two little girls conceived through invitro fertilization and ovum donation, as my treatment did render me infertile. I have talked to my fertility doc and it is my understanding that you can try shortly after your husband has stopped chemo. Talk to a reproductive endocrinologist to be sure. Another great resource is Fertile Hope.
