In both of these cases, the strongest, healthiest sperm has the best chance of reaching and fertilizing the egg. In...

The study, which was led by researchers at the University of Adelaide's Robson Institute, examined a total of 308,000 South Australian births over an 18-year period, and discovered that children born as a result of intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) were more likely...

Doctors have known for some time that children born after fertility treatments such as in vitro fertilisation (IVF) or intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) are at increased risk of cerebral palsy. However, it was not known whether this risk was due to the treatment itself, the higher frequency of preterm or multiple births, or a mechanism associated with couples' underlying infertility. Now, new research published online in Europe's leading reproductive medicine journal Human Reproduction...

A review of studies of babies born after in vitro maturation (IVM) fertility treatment has suggested that they are more likely to be born larger than normal and to have more difficult births requiring more obstetric interventions such as caesareans. Authors of the literature review to be presented to the 26th annual meeting of the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology in Rome today (Wednesday) believe that this may be a problem associated with the IVM process in which immature...

The amount of baby boys produced by a fertility treatment called ICSI may be less than what is created naturally, a new study says. Normally, there are 105 boys conceived for every 100 girls. However, the new research discovered that this boy-to-girl ratio is inverted when ICSI is used. In the 15,000 U.S. babies born in 2005 through fertility treatments, it was discovered that ICSI resulted in a small amount of boys. In couples that used ICSI, less than 50% were boys. ICSI occurs when sperm...
