In brief: Big subject

1. Possible obstetric risk: preterm delivery 2.
Possible increase of congenital abnormalities although none of these are proven to be due to the procedure. There may be slight increase in the risk of abnormalities maybe related to the infertile population themselves (maternal age, father with few or no sperm).
