HOW MANY EMBRYOS SHOULD I GET TRANSFERRED TO INCREASE SUCCESS RATES?
This is an Egg Donation question that is usually asked generally at the end of your egg donation cycle when patients are confused and stressed. It is a very important question and you should have your mind made up well in advance. Luckily it is a topic on which scientific evidence is pretty clear. The evidence shows that success rates are not increased when transferring two instead of a single embryos.
Transferring two embryos increases the risk of twin pregnancies which have many more complications for mother and babies.
There is also some evidence now that adding embryos of poor quality together with a better quality embryo might reduce the chance of implantation for the good embryo.
The best advise is to aim for transfer of a single good quality embryo.
