Peer-Reviewed Publication

JAMA Network

About The Study: This study demonstrated that same-sex lesbian couples undergoing assisted reproductive technology (ART) had more favorable or similar birth outcomes to heterosexual couples who conceived naturally or underwent ART to conceive, suggesting that infertility-related factors rather than reproductive treatments contribute to higher rates of adverse birth outcomes in ART pregnancies. 

Authors: Alice Goisis, Ph.D., of University College London, is the corresponding author.
