do fertility drugs cause breast cancer ?

Dr. Charles Gordon
Specializes in Adolescent Medicine
No: We would love to know what causes any cancer. No! The drugs they give women for infertility can increase their rate of release of eggs from their ovaries. They also play around with the viscosity of the cervical mucus. It is somewhat complicated to explain in 400 characters or less but they DO NOT cause cancer.
