I finished my treatment for Hodgkin lymphoma in June and the problem is completely gone. I have a few questions now. 

Can a survivor take contraceptive pills if needed? 

Is occasional alcohol consumption fine?

    Of course you need to check with your doctor about these questions. 

    I can't speak to contraceptives since I had a hysterectomy long before getting cancer.

    It was at least 2 months after my last chemo that I had a beer. It's been over a year now and I still limit myself to 1 or 2 beers a week if I have any. Mainly because it seems to hit me quicker than it used to. I've never been a big whiskey or wine drinker so limiting those is easy for me.
