Conclusion
In summary, research has demonstrated that ovulation induction is associated with serious, sometimes life-threatening, events. Severe ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome still occurs in about 1 in 50 to 1 in 100 women in spite of careful monitoring. Multiple pregnancy frequently complicates ovulation-induced and assisted-conception pregnancies. Perinatal mortality is excessive. Recent data suggest that ovulation induction may also be a risk factor for extrauterine pregnancy, neural tube defects, defects in reproductive organogenesis, malignant neoplasms, and hydatidiform mole.
