You have not mentioned the time of last chemo. You can have children after chemo. What was chemo given to you should also be mentioned because some chemo can cause temporary sterility. This can be evaluated by serum FSH, LH testing. Anyway if you are pregnant or not can be tested by simple urine test. Consult your gynaecologist
