 Poor Fertility and Taking Longer Time to Conceive May Cause Neurological Problems in Children

A recent study published online in the Fetal & Neonatal Edition of Archives of Disease in Childhood, suggests that poor fertility increases the risk of child being born with mild neurological problems by nearly 30%.

It is well known that children born after fertility treatment are at a risk of premature birth and low birth weight and may face developmental problems. The findings of this study show that it is the poor fertility and not the in vitro fertilization that is responsible for the developmental problems.

A team of Dutch scientists assessed the health of 209 two-year-old children born to parents who had difficulties conceiving for more than a year and most of whom had undergone fertility treatment.

It was found that 8% of the children born to parents who took longer time, on an average four years, to conceive had mild neurological problems. While parents of children without any problem on an average took two years and eight months to conceive.

According to the authors, factors associated with poor fertility may influence neurological development in children.
