Hello Katie
Thanks for posting your query on HCM
I would like to know if you are menstruating regularly, if yes then your reproductive system is functioning well.
Chemtherapy drugs are potentially toxic and can affect the fertilty however, I am sure you are a chemontherapy nurse and you have not taken the drugs yourself so nothing much to worry for that reason.
However, if you are exposed to radiations too ofetn then there are chances of infertility.
In order to assess the fertility. a number of tests are done- Ultrasonography of pelvis, hormone status- LH, FSH, estradiol and follicular scan.

Thanks and take care
