Going Through IVF Does Not Increase Chance Of Divorce

 Previous research has suggested that going through IVF could cause couples to split up which has resulted in most IVF counselling sessions being focused on stress reduction. However, a new study of 40,000 people found no link between IVF and divorce. Researchers said that IVF can actually improve relationships by forcing couples to communicate. Dr. Mariana Martins from the University of Porto in Portugal and lead investigator, said, “Our results will be reassuring for couples who have had or are contemplating IVF. Findings on the security of relationship and parenthood can be particularly helpful in supporting patients’ commitment to treatment.” (DailyMail)
