Fertility issues in patients with cancer

Rebecca Foster Chemotherapy Sister, Pinderfields Hospital, Wakefield

Patients undergoing chemotherapy treatment need a great deal of support and information to better cope with and understand their treatment. Despite the potentially devastating effects of some chemotherapy treatments on patients’ fertility and possibly even their sexuality, there is little information currently available. The author decided to write a patient information leaflet to provide more guidance to patients in this area and this article hopes to provide the same to nurses who treat cancer patients.
