IVF Embryos debate of transferring one or several

IVF embryos A frequent debate in assisted procreation is whether it is better to transfer one or several embryos to obtain better results, as regards pregnancy and birth rates, with minimal risk for mothers and children. This issue was debated in Human Reproduction (28; 2599-2607, 2013), referring especially to the higher risks involved in multiple pregnancies, particularly twin pregnancies due to their frequency. It concluded that the risks for mothers, and especially for children, are substantially greater in twin pregnancies compared to singleton pregnancies, so single-embryo transfer is preferred.
