I recently posted a study suggesting that women may be more tempted to transfer extra embryos to increase success rates given the economic decline. So, if you were faced (or have been faced) with the decision of whether to transfer a single embryo versus a double embryo, which would you choose?
I understand that the decision is not always just about success rates but also about the risk of multiple births. So, for arguments sake, let us assume that the risk of twins with a single embryo transfer is 2-4% and the risk of multiples with a double embryo transfer is 30-50% [both numbers are reasonable estimates from our practice depending on the woman’s age].
Please share your thoughts at this moment in time. Thanks for taking the time to share with us.
