Part of the tremendous anxiety for me-was what i thought was the cancer risk. I have read a little about "increased" risk for certain cancers with "certain" meds. however, after speaking with three different specialist who quoted recent research-the report was, greater risk of breast cancer in not having a child than cancer from stimulation meds. (as reported to me by fertility specialists) I was also told that the association with ovarian cancer is associated with the length of time on particular meds. I am not an expert so, I would consult with your doctor. I can only say-I too wish there was something less concerning to take.

Does anyone have any good info from their doctors or other sources on future Ovarian Cancer risks after IVF? This is my biggest concern with these treatments - I don't want to be successful in starting a family with my husband only to potentially leave them prematurely! Most things I've read seem to point to no connection but I need some more reassurance. Is it just a question of wanting to have a family more than the unknown risk of the future side effects? I don't know at this point...

I'm about to start an IVF cycle this week. Had one past IVF attempt that got converted to an IUI due to a low follicle response. I'm going forward no matter what on this one - I want off this 3 year hellish roller coaster my husband and I have been on.
Sending all good thoughts out to everyone out there struggling with this problem. :-)
