Risks and complications of ART

Assisted conception treatments are basically safe procedures. The risk of having complications can be minimized by using soft ovarian stimulation protocols or reducing the number of embryos transferred. Other risks such as ectopic pregnancies or miscarriages are due to factors that are very difficult to control.

The most common risks and complications are:

– Ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHS)
– Ectopic pregnancy
– Spontaneous miscarriage
– Multiple pregnancy
– Specific risks associated with an advanced maternal age
– Psychological risks
– Genetic risks
