Dear Dr. Jacobs,
Have there been any studies that show an increase incedence of breast cancer when they have had IVF treatments? Thanks Laura

I do not know of any link between an increased risk of breast cancer, ovarian cancer or early menopause associated with IVF. In the 90's there was a very poorly done investigation regarding a possible increased risk of ovarian cancer, but their data did not support their conclusion.
