Children whose parents had trouble becoming pregnant may be at increased risk for mild neurological problems, a new study suggests.
The study involved 206 children born to couples who took a long time to conceive. Of these, 122 were conceived with the help of fertility treatment, and 87 were conceived naturally. At age 2, the children took tests designed to assess their neurological development, including tests of motor function, posture, reflexes and eye-hand coordination.
Taking a longer time to get pregnant was linked with a 30 percent increase in the risk of mild neurological problems in the children.
