Research to justify if concerns regarding IVF (in vitro fertilization) and the increased risk of having a child with brain, eye, or musculoskeletal defects has found that there is a small risk, but one that is not associated with the process of IVF. IVF is a type of fertility treatment where the egg is removed from the woman's ovary, inseminated with the man's sperm and put back into the woman's uterus to (hopefully) implant. Birth defects occur in 6.2% of all IVF derived children, and 4.4% of children conceived by natural means.
