    First cycle, transferred 2, had one baby boy; he's almost a year old. Did our 2nd cycle at the end of February, transferred 2, and I am 13.5 weeks along with fraternal twins!

  • We were successful on our first IVF/ICSI cycle. We transferred 2 on day 5. I have stage 4 endometriosis and DH has pretty severe MFI.

     We are expecting TWINS in October. Good luck with your upcoming IVF! I hope to see you over here soon.

    Married 8/14/10 * TTC since Aug 2010 * Met with RE in Feb 2012 * DH: low motility, low sperm count, elevated FSH * Me: Stage 4 Endometriosis * Laparotomy to remove endo in May 2012 * June 2012 - DH on Rx to hopefully increase count/quality * Re-tested sperm 10/22/12, count/quality have both dropped * IVF #1 w/ICSI * Transferred 2 beautiful embryos on 2/18/13 * Beta #1 3/1/13 - 636!!!

  • We transferred one embryo on our first IVF cycle. It split, but the second didn't grow past 6.5 weeks and I'm due in July.

  • Whether you are transferring Day 3 or 5 embryos and the quality of the embryos transferred is going to make a difference in the responses you get here.

    That said, this time we transferred one Day 5 blastocyst of good quality, and it split into identical twins, so we are currently expecting two babies from one embryo.  

    Good luck!

  • Keep in mind the quality of the embryos will and should affect your decision, as a PP said. For example, you may not want to put 2 very good quality embryos in if you're worried about twins, but one good and one so-so may be ok, or two so-so ones or even three.

    This is a decision you want to talk through carefully with your doctor because ever situation is unique. You also may not want to put in 2 if your lining quality/thickness is not optimal.

    In my opinion, if you're not even done with egg retrieval, it's a bit early to be talking about how many embryos to put in. Wait and see how many you get and what quality they are then go from there.

    Thank you very much everyone. My RE said everything is up to me after they do ICSI and all my tests came back great. My AMH level is however 16- very high so I have to do very low doses of meds. We signed off on 2 embryos due to the fact 1 had a rate of 25%. 2 of 55%. God won't give us what we can't handle but just curious on stats. Thank you ladies & congrats!!

    I wouldn't rely on those statistics.  There's no way you or your doctor can know that until you know the qualities of your embryos.  It sounds like your doctor is speaking in general terms (and those are very strange statistics, which do not align with national SART data, unless I'm missing something in particular about your situation).  

    Also, another major factor is age, and the ASRM has very strict guidelines as to how many should be transferred.  If you are under 35 with favorable quality embryos, the recommendations is one, possibly two if your embryos are not of favorable quality.  I'd just echo the previous posters that this is not a decision you should be making 100% at this point until you know how your cycle goes, although it's certainly good to start thinking about your comfort levels for high order multiples and health risks for you and the babies with even a twin pregnancy.
