As a fertility patient I have ingested and injected an innumerable amount of fertility drugs in my quest to have a baby. As a result I have endured a variety of side-effects and symptoms ranging from the barely noticeable to the majorly irritating. Until recently, however, I had never considered the possibility that all of those medications and high-dose hormones that help my ovaries kick into high gear, may one day have an impact my ovarian health, namely in the form of ovarian cancer. Once it crossed my mind though, I couldn’t seem to get that scary thought out of my head.
