Abstract

Infertility is a major concern worldwide. In 1972, birth of the first test tube baby, Louise Brown, set the tone for greater progress in Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART). Since then, ART procedures have become routine around the world. It has resulted in the birth of over 5 million babies worldwide. Although the extensive efforts to improve fertility have been much welcomed, research has shown that there are associated risks with either ART or infertility.  Literature has brought forth evidence  regarding  birth defects, abnormalities  in genomic imprinting and cardiovascular risks. This warrants a need for more thorough studies of the safety ART procedures.
