With so many couples struggling to conceive, IVF has proved to be a boon and helped them have their own little bundle of joy. However, a recent path breaking study has found that women undergoing infertility treatment stand a higher risk of developing ovarian cancer. Studies showed that these women had more than one third chance of developing this stubborn and difficult cancer.
Association of infertility and ovarian cancer:
The researchers found that conditions such as endometriosis also increased chances of developing ovarian cancer. Expert panels of researchers saw that women whose husbands were infertile and were undergoing infertility treatments did not have a higher risk. Thus, it was concluded that infertility in the woman itself was an underlying factor for developing ovarian cancer and not the treatments for infertility. Infertile women who ovulate regularly do not get the nine month pregnancy break of not ovulating; this might be putting them at a higher risk, since they are constantly producing eggs.
IVF is safe:
Being one of the best centers for infertility in Germany, doctors at Euromedic Healthcare have seen that IVF is extremely safe and gives great results for couples wishing to conceive. It is reassuring for many couples that assisted reproductive techniques (ART) in no way cause ovarian cancer. Ovarian cancers are always detected in late stages, after they have spread all over the body. This makes it one of the deadliest cancers with a high mortality rate even among cancers. Understanding the relationship between infertility and ovarian cancer can help doctors diagnose ovarian cancers faster as whatever seems to increase the risk of infertility, can also increase chances of this cancer.
Infertility needs to be addressed and treated immediately and must include a comprehensive testing and analysis of both partners. The exact cause of infertility is identified with thorough examination and investigations by highly experienced doctors from Euromedic Healthcare, at the heart of global health care, Germany. A precise plan of treatment is charted out based on the couple’s health status and preferences before initiating treatment for infertility.
Stem cell for treating infertility:
Stem cell therapy is a new ray of hope for treating infertility. Expert doctors at Euromedic Healthcare are employing stem cells to treat various cases of infertility. These stem cells are harnessed from humans. These stem cells are undifferentiated cells which have the potential to become the precursor egg (ovum) or sperm cells when stimulated in a regulated medical manner. With the novel use of stem cell therapy in treatment and cure of infertility, many couples are coming from all over the world to Germany to experience the joy of parenthood.
