Women who take fertility drugs do not have a higher risk of ovarian cancer. There has been ongoing debate about whether fertility drugs boost the likelihood of ovarian cancer.

This latest study in the British Medical Journal finds no overall increased risk after the use of any fertility drug.

It also found no increased risk among women who had 10 or more cycles of fertility drug treatment or among women who never became pregnant.
