Abstract

Purpose of review

To critically appraise the existing literature on perinatal outcomes following oocyte donation (OD) pregnancies and compare it with autologous in-vitro fertilization (IVF) pregnancies.

Recent findings

OD pregnancies are at higher risk of developing hypertensive disorders compared with autologous IVF. The risk of preterm birth and low birth weight is higher with singleton and multiple OD compared with autologous IVF pregnancies. There is no increased risk of congenital malformations following OD compared with autologous IVF births.

Summary

OD pregnancies are at higher risk of developing hypertensive disorders and adverse perinatal outcomes compared with autologous IVF.
