Response to DE mentioned


Actually, the drug used for a DE IVF cycle - estrace - can actually slightly increase one's risk of getting breast cancer. So telling someone that "DE is the way to go" to decrease their risk of cancer, is not 100% accurate. I had to research this because I've done several DE cycles, have taken estrace with each one. It is a concern. So, I just get a regular mammogram done every year.

However, there are many studies that indicate NO increased risk of cancer from doing IVF.

Everything in life is a risk, anyway.
