Time to think about neonatal outcome in assisted reproductive technology

Time to think about neonatal outcome in assisted reproductive technology
Assisted reproductive technology (ART), originally called in vitro fertilization (IVF), has been with us for forty years. During all this time efforts have mainly been targeted at increasing outcome, first expressed as pregnancy rates and more recently, as overall ART yield or live-birth rates. Of all the steps taken for improving ART outcome, the introduction of ovarian stimulation (OS) nearly from the inception of ART has been the single most effective measure ever implemented. Originally, fears existed that OS might alter oocyte quality, as it leads to recuperate, and inseminate, oocytes bound for atresia.
