open to eligible females ages 18-45
The investigators propose to test the efficacy of the Reproductive Health Survivorship Care Plan (SCP-R), a novel survivorship care tool to meet the reproductive health needs of young breast cancer survivors (YBCS). Most YBCS undergo chemotherapy and/or endocrine therapy, treatments that impair ovarian function and result in significant reproductive health late effects. These late effects include symptoms of estrogen deprivation such as hot flashes, fertility concerns, limited contraception options and sexual problems. Together they have a major, negative impact on quality of life. Despite substantial research, treatment guidelines and clinical expertise on these issues, most YBCS and their healthcare providers have limited guidance on how best to manage these reproductive health late effects. The research team has generated a practical, accessible, evidence-based reproductive health survivorship care plan (the SCP-R) for YBCS and their providers to address this deficit in survivorship care. This clinical trial will test if YBCS who receive the web-based SCP-R are more likely than controls to improve on at least one of these reproductive health issues: hot flashes, sexual health, fertility concerns, and contraception.
