Does chemotherapy cause sterility or infertility?

By Andrea Rodrigo (embryologist).

Chemotherapy can cause sterility as it affects the eggs and sperm. Therefore, if this oncological treatment prevents the development and maturation of the gametes, fertilization cannot occur and, therefore, we are dealing with a case of sterility.
