Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Multiple pregnancies from ART procedures are all too common. Efforts to reduce high-order multiple pregnancies will require both social and medical reforms. In lieu of a legislative agenda to reduce multiple pregnancies in the United States, efforts must come from the personnel within the individual ART clinics. The approach to the problem includes accepting a lower pregnancy rate than otherwise might be obtainable, if the observed rate of high-order multiple pregnancies is above a certain threshold. Expanding the opportunities for ART reimbursement will ultimately address this problem in the United States, but until then, it is a problem that will not go away without commitment and resolve.
