In the general population, every woman has a 1-in-70 possibility of developing ovarian cancer during her life. Known risks for ovarian cancer include infertility, nulliparity, and genetics. Alternatively, the use of contraception pills and pregnancy reduce a woman’s life risk of developing ovarian cancer. The amount of ovulations that occur throughout a woman’s life increases the risk of cancer formation. Hence, there is concern that the use of fertility medications could heighten the danger. While it is true that infertile women are in the higher risk of developing ovarian cancer, this risk is not increased by using fertility medications.
