5 What else should I know?

Sexually active patients should either refrain from sexual intercourse or use a condom for 48 hours following treatment. This is to protect your partner against possible contact with the chemotherapy drug.

Pregnant women should not receive Mitomycin-C. If you or your partner are planning to become pregnant please consult your doctor. Women should not breastfeed while receiving Mitomycin-C.

As smoking is very closely related to the development of bladder cancer, you should try to stop smoking to limit your chances of a bladder cancer recurrence.
