It is estimated that more than 4.5 million couples experience infertility each year, and more than 4 million babies have been born using IVF since 1978. However, assisted reproductive technologies continue to raise many medical, social, ethical, political and religious questions, often leading to controversial and sometimes inaccurate opinions about the outcomes of pregnancies resulting from these techniques. This is the first book dedicated to pregnancies arising from assisted reproductive technologies (ART). Chapters cover the most important management issues, from early pregnancy to outcome of children resulting from ART, including gynaecological, genetic and obstetric complications. Each chapter is written and edited by leading experts in the field of human reproduction. A timely, practical and evidence-based guide to the management of ART pregnancies, based on 30 years of clinical experience, this is essential reading for reproductive and maternal-fetal specialists as well as general obstetricians and gynaecologists.


• Chapters written by experts in ART pregnancies, providing accurate evidence-based information in a comprehensive and fully integrated way
• Includes new techniques such as intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI)
• Presents and discusses the risks and complications associated with ART before and during pregnancy such as failure of treatment, ovarian hyperstimulation, risk of multiple pregnancy and possibility of ectopic pregnancy
