Long discussion: The decision to proceed with IVF is a hard one and should involve a detailed conversation with you fertility specialist. The risks should be discussed and weighed against your desire to have a child. The hormonal exposure during treatment is lower than the hormonal elevation you will experience during pregnancy Pregnancy causes a HUGE surge in hormones way beyond fertility medication.
