An article in the March -April 2013 issue of the Human Reproduction Update journal titled
Controlled ovarian hyperstimulation for IVF: impact on ovarian, endometrial and cervical cancer—a systematic review and meta-analysis
is a study by researchers from Greece, the United Kingdom and Sweden. They examined 9 studies which included over 100,000 women. Comparing the women who underwent IVF to the population of infertile women there were no significant associations with ovarian, endometrial or cervical cancer. When they compared the general population of women with women who underwent IVF they found significantly positive association with ovarian cancer and endometrial cancers but not cervical.
I am hoping that future research will include long term follow-up ( only one study was for 10 years after).
