Fertility Affected By Low Dose Radiation

Fertility Affected By Low Dose Radiation
While doctors have known for a while that high doses of radiation can affect fertility, the discovery that low doses can do the same thing is relatively new. Low dose radiation therapy, used to treat brain tumors and some cancers, may affect a woman’s fertility. Anyone undergoing radiation therapy, even very young girls, should talk to their doctors about how to preserve their fertility during treatment as the effects of the radiation can affect a woman’s fertility for more than 15-20 years into the future. Therefore, these talks are even relevant for very young females (children and toddlers) who are receiving radiation treatment.
