To date, the long-term side effects of IVF treatment have not been studied to a large extent. However, they can be classified into two main types: effects on women and effects on babies.
There has been considerable discussion on whether IVF medications (especially Clomid) are liked to cancer, including ovarian cancer and breast cancer.
According to the HFEA, the potential short-term side effects of fertility treatment are: drug reaction, multiple births, ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS), ectopic pregnancy and birth defects.
