Autism and In Vitro Fertilization

Autism experts study in vitro fertilization

The Israeli team's study suggested children conceived through IVF are three times more likely to suffer from mild to moderate autism.

The Harvard team found that autism was nearly twice as common among the children of women who were treated with ovulation-inducing drugs.

Every parent with a child that has autism spectrum disorder is asking the same thing: "What are the causes?"

"It may be the case that there is something there," Fombonne said of infertility treatments. "But it would apply to a very tiny proportion of the autistic population."
