Just found out i’m pregnant after one year on tamixifen!

Hi all,

I haven't written on here since going through my treatment but in a nutshell I was diagnosed with DCIS Her2+ in May 2017 and had chemo, mastecotomy and radio plus a year of herceptin. I have been on tamoxifen for year, and two days ago found out i’m pregnant! I am 34 and already have a 2.5 year old daughter. My husband and I would love another child and never thought we would have the chance so obviously this is a massive shock. It took us 4 years to have our daughter! My first thought is I will need to have a termination due to it being too risky but maybe this is a gift after everything we have been through?

They recommend taking tamoxifen for a minimum of two years before stopping to concieve. We are seeing my oncologist on Thursday. For now I have stopped taking tamoxifen until we make a decision.

Any help or advice would be appreciated Smiley Sad
