  • BACKGROUND In response to the ongoing debate on the long-term effects of assisted reproduction technologies, such as IVF, we systematically reviewed and meta-analyzed available evidence on the association between controlled ovarian hyperstimulation for IVF and risk of ovarian, endometrial and cervical cancer. METHODS Eligible studies were identified and pooled effect estimates for relative risk (RR) were calculated by cancer type among two reference groups (general population or infertile… CONTINUE READING
