Assessing whether those born by assisted reproduction show more negative side effects than those conceived naturally has been extensively studied (see HERE and HERE ), but knowing whether these effects exist in the long term is not well determined. A recent study that looked at these effects in ART- conceived individuals aged 25-35 years of age, compared with a control group, “found no differences in socioeconomic measures (educational attainment, financial and employment status, and lifestyle behaviors […])”. They also found no significant differences in health.
