Response to confused - question about banking and back to back cycles


The IVF procedure itself poses no cancer fear at all. The biggest cancer risk is really from elevated estrogen particularly for those with very sensitive estrogen receptors. There are many women out there trying on their own using Clomid month after month, that is no different from banking. Here is a study on cancer risk of fertility drugs.

However, personally I would electively take out my ovaries when I am done with this just to be cautious. Ovarian cancer incidence typically surges right around menopause, unless one has a family history.

Even within the infertile group that they sampled, only 0.3% have ovarian cancer and the mean age is 63. There is plenty of time before that mean age that you can bank and then take out your ovaries.
