Is there a risk of multiple pregnancy using artificial insemination?

By Zaira Salvador.
Last Update: 08/28/2018

With ovarian stimulation, the number of eggs that can be fertilized by sperm is increased in order to increase the probability of pregnancy. Therefore, there is a greater risk of multiple pregnancy compared to what happens in a natural cycle.

To reduce this risk, it is important that ovarian stimulation is moderate, preventing the development and ovulation of more follicles than desired.

Suggested for you: Artificial Insemination (AI) Using Ovulation Induction.
