Adolescent and Young Adult Female Cancer Survivors – Cancer Experience Survey

​​This study aims to: 1) assess reproductive intentions and receipt of fertility counseling or preservation in relation to post-diagnosis birth outcomes among adolescent and young adult cancer survivors in North Carolina and the Kaiser Permanente Northern California and Kaiser Permanente Southern California health systems; 2) examine infertility, pregnancy loss history, and use of infertility services among adolescent and young adult cancer survivors within those health systems compared to the U.S. general population; and 3) examine the frequency of self-reported cancer recurrence among adolescent and young adult female cancer survivors in North Carolina and in those health systems, and examine the impact of cancer recurrence on post-diagnosis birth rates. Current recommendations for when to attempt pregnancy after cancer diagnosis (typically two to five years) are often based on identified periods of highest cancer recurrence risk, rather than optimal timing for achieving pregnancy, but recurrence information is rarely available.
