hair dye usage

hello there...i have a general question about hair dyes and cancer.
I have been using hair dyes for about 5 years now, dye my hair black every 6 to 8 weeks. I stopped using them when I became pregnant last September, actually I dyes my hair for the last time two weeks before I tested positive on pregnancy test.
I recently read articles on the link to leukemia, lymphoma, bladder cancer and breast cancer from hair dyes....some sites state you have a very high chance of developing these cancers from hair dye use while other sites state there in no concrete proof and research is inconclusive. I am so confused about what I have read and very worried now too...especially because I dyed my hair very early on in pregnancy (must have been about three to four weeks pregnant at most) without knowing I was pregnant.
Does anyone here have any info or experience on the matter?
