The Sad Reason Shannen Doherty Never Had Children – Nicki Swift

Shannen Doherty isn't shying away from the reality of having Stage 4 metastatic breast cancer. Far from it, she's confronting the way her body has changed, is continuing to change, and what her relationship to her body is. In a 2019 interview with Health, Doherty said: "The hormones I went on threw my body into menopause instantly."

Doherty cannot get out of the state of menopause because that would require estrogen. Taking estrogen could up her chances of cancer coming back or getting worse. Still, Doherty told Health (and has been open about it over the years) that she always wanted a child. She and her husband talked about adoption and egg donors. However, Doherty can't wrap her mind around the fear that she might only have five or 10 years to live.

"I certainly wouldn't want my 10-year-old burying a mother. I've always wanted a kid. But maybe I'm supposed to mother in a different way," she said.
