The study confirmed that IVF babies had higher incidence of multiple births, it also confirmed that IVF babies had higher incidence of multiple birth, 44(45.8%) were twins, 18(18.8%) were triplets the remainder 34(35.4%) were singletons. However in the control group 8(8.3%) were twins, 3(3.1%) were triplets and 85(88.5%) were singletons.The incidence of congenital malformations was equal in both groups.
