Featured in NEJM Journal Watch: Trends in Fertility Treatments and Multiple Births in the U.S.

By the NEJM Journal Watch Editors

Fertility treatments account for 77% of triplet and higher-order births, and most are the result of medically assisted conception, according to a study in the New England Journal of Medicine.

In NEJM Journal Watch, obstetrician-gynecologist Robert Rebar says that, "at least for now, increased use of IVF and decreased use of controlled ovarian stimulation plus intrauterine insemination may be the only effective approach" to reducing multiple births.
