Methodology Patients with breast cancer who underwent IVF are studied the prognostic factors (Ki67, HER2, estrogen receptor (ER), progesterone receptor (PR), oncogene p53, histologic grade) in relation to the ovary response and number of IVF cycles.

Results 73 patients with breast cancer after IVF are studied. They performed 135 cycles of IVF, 36 (49’3%) with 1 IVF and 37 (50’7%) with more than one IVF. Hyper response was present in at least one IVF in 24 (32.9%) patients and there was no hyper response in any IVF in 49 (67.1%) patients
