I'm an 18 year old guy who suffered from cancer at a very young age. I was diagnosed with Stage 4 Neuroblastoma at about 2 and half years of age. I lost my left kidney and adrenal gland through surgery and underwent intense chemotherapy treatment, which included cisplatin. I've heard that this chemo agent can lead to infertility but no studies I have read confirmed it.
Basically, as long as I can remember, every time I have masturbated and had sex (just twice, with the same girl and yes I practice safe sex), I have never actually ejaculated any sperm. I still get the full sensation of an orgasm and occasionally, I get a little sticky stuff, but just enough to cover the opening, sometimes it is clear other times it is white (looking like it is full of really tiny bubbles).
I am wondering if the chemotherapy treatment at such a young age might have caused infertility. All input is appreciated.
If it were me, I'd get checked out, to see if the surgery has caused retrograde ejaculation, where the semen empties into the bladder and gets urinated out.
If this is the case, once it is fixed, you can have your semen analyzed, and see if it has motile sperms, in sufficient numbers to conceive. If not, sometimes they can collect multiple ejaculations for in vitro fertilization. Best of luck to you.
I once knew a guy who having undergone treatment for cancer was suffering from anospermia (absence of sperm). He told that he was getting treatment for it, that is, for the anospermia. That was more than fifteen years ago, and since I lost contact with him, I can't say whether he was able to regain his fertility. At the time he was about to get married. While you may be right to think the cancer treatment caused infertility, I am quite convinced that it can be reverted, since no essential gland was affected (the testis and the prostate). Good nutrition is very important in that it is responsible for the quality and quantity of your semen. Do you have a healthy diet? Tommy is giving some good advice. I urge you to talk to a medical doctor, if possible to the same doctor who treated you for the cancer.
