Medically Assisted Reproduction: The Effects on Children, Adults and Families

Project description

A rigorous scientific study should point to any outcomes of fertility treatment other than fertility

An increasing number of people are undergoing medically assisted reproduction to conceive. While medically assisted reproduction can help people overcome infertility, the impact of such treatments on the children and their parents and families are not fully understood. Given that more than 5 million children have already been born through in vitro fertilisation alone, a rigorous scientific study is overdue. The EU-funded MARTE project is filling in the gaps using very large data sets and analysing multiple adult and child outcomes to determine those associated with treatment. The project will be critical to informing the public, policy and healthcare providers about this very important decision that more and more people are making.
