Every two hours, every day, in the UK a woman dies from ovarian cancer. That's 12 - mothers, daughters and friends - and it's definitely 12 women too many. Over 7,000 women a year receive a diagnosis of ovarian cancer, and of that, what's really brutal, is that over 4,300 will die within five years.
Different dosages of drugs are used by different clinics, with some clinics even using 600 IU of FSH per day which is very high. Some clinics also give "off label" medication during the implantation phase and early pregnancy. It is concerning that there is no regulation as to what drugs are given and in what dosages.
There is some evidence to show that if women are on the Pill for more than ten years, they may be at a slightly higher risk from breast and cervical cancers, but it is possible that this is because these cancers tend to be picked up earlier as women on the Pill tend to have health check-ups more often.
