- Question from Wellness: How long after MammoSite radiation do I need to wait until trying to conceive again?
- Answers - Kutluk Oktay, M.D. This appears to cause less radiation to surrounding organs, and since giving standard radiation is not a problem in terms of ovarian function, MammoSite treatment should not affect your future fertility.
- Leslie R. Schover, Ph.D. You would probably want to wait the standard 6 months that we've referenced here tonight as well.
