Debunking the Myth: Do Fertility Treatments Cause Cancer?

At Mount Sinai Fertility in Toronto, we understand the concerns surrounding fertility treatments. Some people might be concerned about the potential risk of cancer. Addressing this issue is crucial for informed decision-making and peace of mind.

Extensive research over several decades has shown no conclusive evidence linking standard fertility treatments to an increased risk of cancer. Procedures like in vitro fertilization (IVF), ovulation induction, and fertility medications have not been found to cause cancer. The slight elevation in hormone levels during these treatments doesn’t significantly impact cancer risk.

It’s vital to note that pre-existing conditions or factors, such as age, genetics, lifestyle, or underlying medical issues, may influence both fertility challenges and cancer risks independently.

At Mount Sinai Fertility, patient safety is paramount. We prioritize personalized care, considering each individual’s unique medical history and concerns. Our protocols adhere to rigorous safety standards, ensuring the best possible outcomes for our patients.
