How many embroys to transfer

Hi All,



We are currently going through our first IVF attempt and the clinic are strongly suggesting single embryo transfer. They are talking about the high risk factors associated with multiple births.

We just really want to give things the best chance and before we got to this stage had decided if we are lucky enough to be in the position we would like to transfer 2 embryos, all the advice from the clinic seems to be against this.



I am just wondering what everyone else's experiences of this are, has anyone taken their clinics advice and only had one transfer and had a BFP, or should we stick to our original thoughts and try for a double transfer?

thanks ladies

Hi Pip

On our very first cycle we only had 1 embryo transferred on the advice of our clinic and we got a BFP (unfortunately I miscarriage) we then had 2 embroys on our 2nd & 3rd cycles one resulted in a BFP which I again miscarried.

As it is your first cycle I would stick with 1 as per your clinic - remember its not necessarily about quantity but quality. You have to go with whatever you feel is best for you :)

Wish you all the very best with your journey.

I felt as you did for years and then what the clinics warn of happened to me.

Because of that, and to be fair I guess my experience makes me biased, I'd suggest single transfer, especially if you get to blastocyst stage - if you're left with two on day two or three, then I'd go for two back.

There is a website called one at a time which gives more info on single vs double transfers.

Good luck!

Hi Pip, I agree with everything everyone has said above. Especially the bit about it depending on the quality of embryos you end up with being able to choose from.
Also your age is a factor too, if you are under 35 then usually 1 is the safest option as your chance of success is higher than if you were over 35.

GOOD LUCK!!! blowkiss

Hi Pip,

If u get more than one free NHS attempt then maybe sensible to opt for single embryo transfer first cycle...

Lots of luck whatever you decide, it is a very personal decision xx
