My husband is taking Tamoxifen for 3 years now he

Patient : My husband is taking Tamoxifen for 3 years now he was diagnosed with breast cancer at 34, I am pregnant and unsure if it is safe. We asked two different oncologist back when he started treatment one said it was safe another said there really was not enough research on tamoxifen in men his age to give us an answer. we recently asked his current nurse and she said they dont recomend pregnancy. I am leaning toward terminating pregnancy due to this but i just need to be sure i am making an informed decision. what is your take on this issue?
