What negative effects can IVF medication have?

By Zaira Salvador.
Last Update: 11/24/2021

Medications used in assisted reproduction can produce various side effects such as headaches, mood swings, abdominal pain, hot flashes and bloating. Occasionally, they can cause ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome.

With ovarian stimulation, more eggs are developed than in a natural cycle, but this will not lead to an earlier menopause. Women are born with a finite number of eggs and maturation has no effect and will not bring an earlier end to the reproductive stage.
