False beliefs about assisted reproduction

Assisted reproduction has been the subject of many myths, perhaps because it is still somewhat taboo and not openly discussed.

One of these myths is that, with assisted reproduction, pregnancy is assured. However, this is not true. There are occasions when a woman, after one or more cycles, does not manage to get pregnant.

On the other hand, assisted reproduction does not always result in multiple pregnancies. There is now a tendency to transfer a single embryo into the patient's uterus, thus reducing the multiple pregnancy rate of the past.

Similarly, it is also false that assisted reproduction allows you to choose the sex of your future baby. This is only allowed in Spain when it is done to avoid a sex-linked disease in the offspring.
