There is a possibility of all the eggs growing successfully and this may become a problem for the couple. Also there are certain abnormalities that are observed in children born through IVF. Heart defects, gastrointestinal abnormalities, dislocated hips, clubbed feet and chromosomal disorders such as Down’s syndrome are observed among the children.
