comscoreFertility After Hormonal Therapy

There are three hormonal therapy medicines approved for treating premenopausal women:

  • tamoxifen

  • Evista (chemical name: raloxifene)

  • Fareston (chemical name: toremifene)

These hormonal therapy medicines can cause your periods to become irregular or stop and make your ovaries stop producing eggs. Many premenopausal women are still fertile and start their periods again after hormonal therapy treatment is done. But it's important to know that some women have problems getting pregnant after hormonal therapy.
