Why is single embryo transfer encouraged?
A trial was performed to see the higher success rate of a single embryo transfer with CCS versus a transfer with two embryos. Both groups had an equal amount for the delivery rate. The difference was that the group in the study that had two embryos transferred had a 46% chance of conceiving with twins. This can cause a woman to have a more difficult pregnancy as well as more preterm births and having more time of their newborns in the NICU. Dr. Eric Forman from Reproductive Medicine Associates of New Jersey explains.
