The high rate of multiple gestations following ovulation induction with and without assisted reproductive technologies (ART) has led to an increased interest in selective reduction. The aim of this study was to compare pregnancy outcome of 6 triplet and 2 quintuplet pregnancies following selective reduction to twins to a group of 30 natural twin pregnancies delivered during the same time period. Outcome variables compared included birth weights, gender, gestational age at delivery, route of delivery, and neonatal complications. Results failed to demonstrate an adverse effect of selective reduction on pregnancy outcome.
