IVF May Lead To Higher Stillborn Risk

Stillborn Risk With IVF Four Times Higher

I have had numerous posts about some of the risks associated with IVF, everything from a higher rate of ectopic pregnancies to fetal abnormalities, multiple births and the list goes on.
My site:
 This article talks about a study which has identified an increased risk of stillbirths in IVF patients. Read more:

From the article:

A study has suggested that the technique may be to blame for the increased risk rather than the couple's underlying fertility problems.

Almost 50,000 cycles of IVF are carried out each year in Britain, treating around 37,000 women.

Research carried out in Denmark found that women who conceived using in vitro fertilisation (IVF) where the eggs and sperm are mixed together in a dish, or the more advanced intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) where a single sperm is injected directly into the egg, were four times more likely to have a stillborn child than those who conceived naturally.

Fertile women who conceived naturally, those who had suffered problems but did not require treatment and those who had other, non-IVF treatments had a lower risk of stillbirth.

This shows that the IVF technique or something about the couples who have IVF is responsible for the increased risk of stillbirth, the researchers said.
