Although there is no research that I have seen that links fertility treatments involving hormones to breast cancer, many of the young women that I have spoken to (including myself) suspect that our Clomid use may have contributed to our cancer. Now there is research that shows that the drug is no more effective in conceiving than doing nothing.
Two common treatments for fertility problems do not work, an Aberdeen University-led study suggests.
UK guidelines recommend the drug clomid and artificial insemination for couples who have trouble conceiving despite no known cause for their infertility.
But trials of 580 women in Scotland found the treatments were no better than trying to get pregnant naturally, the British Medical Journal reports.
