If infertile women go and get the fertility shots for art, what are the possible birth defects?

In brief: HMG & birth defects

Use of hmg would be the same incidence of birth defects as getting pregnant without the medication.

In brief: None known

All evidence consistently shows no increased risk (over natural) of any anomaly or abnormality in kids born with fertility medicines - none at all.
A very specific case of art, ivf with icsi, continues to be studied for whether or not there is a very small increase (around 2-3%) in risk of congenital anomalies.
