A link between Ovarian Cancer and Infertility

British researchers shows that after In vitro fertilization (IVF), women have 30% more risk of suffering from ovarian cancer. They found that after more than 10 years of follow up, 386 out of more than 250 000 women developed ovarian cancer.

Compared to the general population of women, patients who undergo Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) had a one-third times greater chances of developing ovarian cancer.

Women suffering from an overgrowth of the uterine lining (Endometriosis) had a higher probability of developing ovarian cancer, while women, who never had a child, either before or after treatments, were at the highest risk.
