For nearly thirty years, in-vitro fertilization (IVF) has been consider relatively safe.  A recent report in the New York Times, however, reports that new epidemiological studies and scientific techniques have revealed findings that suggest that “there may be some abnormal patterns of gene expression associated with IVF and a possible increase in rare but devastating genetic disorders that appear to be directly linked to those unusual gene expression patterns.”  The report also states that, with IVF, there “appears to be an increased risk of premature birth and of babies with low birth weight for their gestational age.”

If you are considering an IVF procedure, we encourage you to speak with your doctors about all potential risks and benefits, so that you can make fully informed decisions.
