In vitro fertilization linked with increased risk of congenital heart defects
A new analysis of published studies found a 50% increased risk of congenital heart defects in newborns when women become pregnant via in vitro fertilization (IVF)/intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) than through spontaneous conception.
In vitro fertilization linked with increased risk of spontaneous preterm birth
A new analysis of published studies found an approximate 80% increased risk of spontaneous preterm birth (both before 37 and 34 weeks of gestation) when women become pregnant via in vitro fertilization (IVF) compared with through spontaneous conception.
