Both myself and my wife have had several cycles of ABVD chemotherapy. The treatment's impact on fertility is one of the scariest side effects that gets brought up. Hodgkin's Lymphoma patients are often people aged between 15 and 25. I remember discussions around fertility and sperm banking seemed very surreal to me at that time. I had thought about children but some extremely difficult questions were asked at that time. Here's an example of one:
Q: Do you give consent to your future wife/partner being able to use your sperm to conceive a child after your death?
These are not the sorts of things 25 year olds are really prepared for!
Outside the ethical questions just the knowledge that fertility could be impacted was quite scary.
Having said all the above both myself and my wife, despite our chemotherapy, were able to conceive very quickly without any issues.
There are many factors, but I want this blog post to reassure people.
Even two people,who both had ABVD chemotherapy for months, were able to get pregnant twice without any issues.
