Chemotherapy often causes early menopause. A Cleveland Clinic researcher led a study of 250 women around the world to see whether giving a drug to make the ovaries go dormant would help.
Two years after cancer treatment ended, women whose ovaries were suppressed were less likely to suffer early menopause, and twice as many of them became pregnant compared to others in the study.
Results were discussed Friday at a cancer conference in Chicago.
