Hi imi.hazi.

Thank you for putting up your problem to Healthcare Magic!
It is not advisable that you should get pregnant.
Acute promyelocytic leukemia itself is a very dangerous disease ans when added with pregnancy it can turn lethal anytime for mother and fetus due to it's effect on coagulation and immunity.
Life threatening hemorrhage can occur due to DIC related to APL.
The chemotherapy might have caused the ovaries not release ovum.
Your ova may be having serious genetic disorder now and can produce a deformed child, crippled for life, so avoid getting any further pregnancies.

I hope this information would be both informative and helpful for you
