Could Chemotherapy Help Increase Fertility?

According to a recent finding by scientists at the University of Edinburgh, ABVD — a treatment used for patients with Hodgkin's lymphoma for chemotherapy — may actually increase a woman's fertility by helping them produce more eggs.

These results were determined based off of the comparison of ovary tissue samples from 14 women who had undergone chemotherapy and 12 women who had not, CNBC reports.

Though more research is necessary, the findings could be "significant and far-reaching" and the further investigation of this could give yet another option to women with low fertility.
