Hi, mahaw. We came to Mayo for IVF/donor egg program when I was 45. I also had all those shots, pills, etc. during the first 3 mo. of pregnancy, and am just fine. We got our healthy, beautiful baby boy on the first IVF/FET, and he’s almost 13 now. I was afraid of the same things you are, but my OB/GYN said there’s no reason to worry – no cancer, etc. related to the hormones taken during that time. Good luck! 🙂
