Pregnancy?

Hi all.

This is mainly a hypothetical question, but if anyone knows some information it would be cool to hear.

So I have gone through all my treatment and have been told i can't get pregnant myself.  BUT, I was wondering, would i still be able to get artificially inseminated with a fertilized egg of my own? 

I do think probably the stenosis of the uterus or some such, as well as pelvic weakness, might be reasons for exclusion but I can't find any info online.

I have read that some women who have naturally gone into menopause can get pregnant through IVF, but maybe there is some other factors to consider in this case.  

October 2019 - smear test

November 2019 - results back; hpv with severe dyskaryosis, colposcopy organised.

November 2019 - colposcopy biopsy taken - confirmed abnormal cells

December 2019 - lletz performed

Jan 2020 - called in: confirmed I have cancer

Tests run through Jan and Feb. During this time went through fertility treatment; 5 eggs frozen.

End Feb - confirmed stage 2b CC (updated info, staging changed to stage 3 invlving lymph nodes)

Treatment starts March - 28 external radio/5 chemo/4 brachy

Only sat 3 chemo after developing tinnitus

April 25th - finished brachytherapy

July 2020 - MRI

Awaiting results

I've wondered about this as well, but haven't seen anything about it either. I presume it's highly unlikely though, with all the radiation we had going on in that region, especially since I had extended field radiation.

I'd like to ask a fertility specialist or something to see if there are reasons to exclude women who've had pelvic radiation treatment.
