Long term risks

Recently, several studies suggested a possible association between ovarian cancer and the use of drugs that induce ovulation (Clomiphine, Pergonal, Fertinex). Although the data does suggest that infertile women, and in particular, women who take infertility drugs, do have a higher risk of ovarian cancer, it is not known whether or not the drugs themselves are the cause for the increased risk. It is important that women considering the use of ovulation induction agents discuss the potential benefits and risks with the Doctor. It is the Center's feeling that all fertility drugs need to be used prudently with suitable monitoring for a limited period of time.
