Fertility Drugs and Ovarian Cancer?

Is there a significant increase of getting ovarian cancer after taking fertlilty drugs such as Chlomid?

Also is the increase worse if you take IVF fertility drugs??

What are the studies on this?

The only journal article making an assertion that "fertility drugs" increase the risk of ovarian cancer did not have any data to support that assertion. In fact, the women in the study who had ovarian cancer did not take any of the medications used today. They were treated before our modern medications were on the market. We have no informaation to imply an increased risk.

Thank you for responding. I feel much better now about my continued journey as I get closer to being able to do the IVF.
