Mothers Who Use Fertility Drugs May Have Shorter Kids
Children conceived through use of fertility drugs may not grow quite as tall as other kids, a new study from Australia suggests.
In the study, boys whose mothers used fertility drugs were on average 1 inch (3 centimeters) shorter at ages 3 to 10, compared with boys of mothers who did not use the drugs. Because they study was small, further research is needed to confirm the findings. Additional studies are also needed to see whether the height difference persists into adulthood, the researchers said.
