Last Update: 02/04/2021

Numerous scientific studies have shown a slightly increased risk of preterm delivery in children conceived by in vitro fertilization (IVF) compared to children conceived naturally.

It is also known that many of the causes of infertility in women who require IVF are the same causes that have a higher risk of preterm delivery. This is the example of diabetes, thyroid problems, alterations in the coagulation system, immune disorders, adenomyosis, fibroids, advanced age, etc.
