Does IVF always result in twins?
MYTH: IVF always results in twins
FACT: While it is true that multiple pregnancies are more common in those undergoing IVF treatment than in those having a natural pregnancy, advancements in ART techniques allow for elective single embryo transfers these days. A multiple pregnancy may not be desirable for many couples.
If there is an increase in the number of embryos transferred, it poses a risk for both the mother and newborn babies both during and after pregnancy. Women with high medical or surgical risk, or couples who already have at least one healthy child are especially advised to consider transferring a single, properly selected and healthy embryo.
At Nova, the maximum number of embryos transferred is two.
