In a systematic review and meta-analysis reported in the Journal of Clinical Oncology, Matteo Lambertini, MD, PhD, and colleagues found that breast cancer survivors were less likely to have subsequent pregnancy vs the general population and more likely to have preterm birth. However, no reduction in competed pregnancies and no increased risk of maternal complications or congenital abnormalities were observed. Survivors with vs without subsequent pregnancy also had better survival outcomes.
