    endometrial cancer and ivf

    Good afternoon! 4 years ago I had an operation to remove the uterus, the ovaries left. diagnosis of uterine cancer 1 stage, up to 0.5 invasion of the myometrium, 2 group. I want to get an embryo with the help of ifv, I have RE +. Who did ivf with this diagnosis and what was the scheme. In Russia, doctors say that this is dangerous, since estrogens can cause cancer return

    While i can not provide any real knowledge as it pertains to your situation, i can say, in the years i have been on this forum, i do not recall anyone inquiring about IVF after a cancer diagnosis.

    What i can suggest, contact an IVF specialist who deals with complex cases.

    It is very risky but I found a fertility doctor to do it. I have to sign a lot of legal waivers due to the high risk of the estrogen injections will cause the cancer to come back and spread. I hope you have had luck. Best wishes.
