Q. Is IVF treatment dangerous?

Overall, IVF treatment is fairly safe. But you get the odd patient who hyper-stimulates, that is with the normal course of injection to grow eggs, the ovaries swell with a lot of eggs and the tummy swells with fluid and they become unwell. But, cases like this are declining because of changing methods of stimulation. Other thing which people worry about is whether they will get cancer in the ovary in the long term but so far, among the thousands of IVF cycles and IVF centres around the world, there is no experience of reports that there is an increased risk of cancer.
