If your ovaries permanently stop producing eggs after treatment, you can still be a parent. There are several options:
- Fertility Treatments: A woman’s own eggs or donor eggs can be extracted and fertilized in vitro. The eggs or ovarian tissue also can be frozen for fertilization much later.
- Surrogacy: A woman carries an egg fertilized with your partner's sperm to term and delivers your baby.
- Adoption: Adoption is available to just about anyone who would like to become a parent. While some agencies prefer a two-parent household, many others are happy to place a child in a loving single-parent home. It's helpful to talk to an experienced adoption counselor who can help guide you through the process.
