IVF Fertility Center in Noida-Ovarian instigation is an important part of the overall treatment for infertility. The purpose of ovarian instigation is to grow as many viable eggs as possible from a woman’s ovaries. By stimulating the ovaries to produce and mature a greater number of follicles/eggs, the odds of developing a healthy embryo for implantation, and thus a successful pregnancy, are greater.
There is a risk of developing ovarian hyper stimulation syndrome (OHSS), a painful, albeit temporary condition, which typically goes away on its own. For more severe OHSS your doctor will prescribe treatment to prevent any risk to your ovaries. This is why we monitor our patients so closely during this stage of IVF.
Over the years there has been some confusion about the relationship between ovarian stimulation and a predisposition for ovarian cancer or tumors. Recently, researchers have been able to shed some light on the faulty misperception, dispelling the notion of a link between ovarian cancer, tumors, and fertility treatment.
According to a new study released by the Journal of the National Cancer Institute, women who receive fertility treatment by way of Advanced Reproductive Technology (ART) are not at an increased danger of developing ovarian cancer due to treatment.
IT'S A MYTH.
Prior research pointed to a potential increase in women’s risk for ovarian cancer after undergoing ART. The research also showed an increased risk for these women developing non-malignant borderline ovarian tumors. To facilitate ovarian stimulation doctors need to prescribe hormonal fertility meds. Researchers incorrectly believed the hormone medication increased the risk for cancer and tumors.

Researchers determined this was due to a higher amount of those women failing to become pregnant, even after the fertility treatments. It's the only strongest factor for developing ovarian cancer, according to the founders of the research, is childlessness, or nulliparity, a medical term that is used to define a woman that has never given birth to a living child.
The study also found that women who have successfully given birth to a larger number of children after IVF fertility treatments had a significantly decreased risk of developing ovarian cancer. In a way, fertility treatment decreased the risk of ovarian cancer, if the outcome was live birth.
