All medical treatments come with some risks, including Artificial Reproductive Treatments (ARTs). It’s very important that you discuss all aspects of any procedure and that you understand any potential complications.

In some cases, ARTs have been linked to an increase probability of miscarriage, low birth weight, prematurity, and neonatal encephalopathy1,2. However, these risks are not fully understood and the subject of ongoing research.
