Multiple births: How are we doing?

Howard W. Jones

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Patients in the United States have greatly benefited from ovulation induction and controlled ovarian hyperstimulation with IVF. However, the troublesome and serious side effects of these technologies continue to plague us. In part, the problem is rooted in the underlying American principle of individual freedoms. To curb such a problem in reproductive matters is a particularly delicate matter. However, if the profession cannot do so, the legislative process may, as might litigation. It is time for our leading medical societies to act by providing and enforcing guidelines.
