Børn født efter assisteret befrugtning

This review summarises the knowledge of children born after in vitro fertilization (IVF). They have small increased risk of preterm birth, low birthweight and congenital malformations compared with naturally conceived children. High rates of multiples after IVF have been a major explanation, but with increasing use of frozen embryo transfer, single embryo transfer has facilitated a huge decline in rates of IVF multiples. Attention has been drawn to potential metabolic disturbances and cardiovascular disease in IVF offspring. However, IVF children do not seem to have an increased risk of mental or psychiatric disease, and their school performance is similar to naturally conceived children.
