Much depends on the staging of your melanoma. The higher risk, the longer you may want to wait. The worry is a recurrence while pregnant. My doctor told me to wait two years. There is no hormonal connection to pregnancy and melanoma that’s scientifically proven. I hope this helps you.
Yes, I had a mitotic rate of 2, and a .76 lesion. Not high risk but they didn’t like the mitotic rate. For further peace of mind you can get a second opinion on the pathology, make sure an expert looks at it, dermatopathologist from a teaching university. (I was lucky to have Wallace Clark, who the Clark levels are named for)
