IVF twins. Monochorionic twins higher risks

Approximately 7.2% of pregnancies achieved through in-vitro fertilisation (IVF twins) are monochorionic twins pregnancies. Since these type of embryos have a higher risk of preterm birth and low birth weight in particular (Fertility and Sterility 104; 629-632, 2015), there seems little doubt that they should try to reduce their number, perhaps by promoting single embryo transfer in each procedure.
