    Does IVF Significantly Increase the Chances of Twins or Triplets? What are the predictors of success in IVF?

    Because of the uncertainties involved, several embryos are often implanted at once. This can lead to twins or triplets, which increases the potential health risks and risk of miscarriage.

    With IVF, you and your doctor determine how many embryos will be transferred into your uterus. If you choose to have a single embryo transferred, then it would be impossible for you to have twins or triplets. However, there is no guarantee your embryo will successfully implant into the uterine lining the first time around. This is why many women, especially those who are unable to afford two or more cycles, often opt to have more than one embryo transferred.

    Yes to some extent, for usually two embryos are placed in the uterus during embryo transfer . For women above 37 years, it might be decided to transfer 3 embryos. This is to improve the chances of pregnancy. Recently there is an upcoming trend of single embryo transfer which would definitely reduce the chances of multiple pregnancies.

    The short answer to this question is no. The process of IVF, in and of itself, does not necessarily lead to a substantially higher risk of multiple pregnancy. In practice, the answer is slightly more nuanced. Statistically, women who undergo IVF have multiple pregnancies (twins, triplets, or higher-order multiples) at a higher rate than women who conceived naturally.

    No. This is not at all true. IVF process doesn’t lead to multiple pregnancies; it is something different than this. For any queries visit your nearest IVF specialist but please don’t analyze things without knowing completely about it.

    Multiple pregnancies may be happen when more than one embryo is transferred during an IVF procedure and all or most of them implant. Usually doctors do not recommend transferring a larger number of embryos to avoid multiple pregnancies because I always affect the health of mother and child. Ideally you should not transfer more than 3 embryos.

    Hi, how are you? I think so you lack some knowledge about it. IVF is the process in which embryo is transferred in females womb. Through this she becomes pregnant. I have seen in many cases. That instead of transferring one embryo. Most female transfer 2embryos. This will help them to increase their chances of twins. This is the new technique used by many clinics. If you are interested you can try this. Wish you the best of luck. Being infertile is a very tough time in women’s lives. Till then I wish everyone a very good luck

    Hey Swati, hope you are doing well. I am Amelia Brown. I live in Ireland. I joined this forum a few days back. I love the way you people inquire to get more and more knowledge. Well I am no professional dear. I just have treatment experiences as a patient. As I am trying to conceive for last 10 years. I did asked my doctor once about this. She was of the view that it is not in doctors’ hand completely. Patients do ask for such things. But nothing is guaranteed. Even the birth of one child can not be guaranteed. Doctors can implant more than one embryo to help patients have more than one child. But it all depends on luck.

    Hi Swati, hope you are enjoying good health dear. Its Jenniferr Green from Canada. I am a patient of endometriosis. My doctors suggested me to try IVF. I did tried IVF twice. Though it failed both times. But I learned a lot about it. Basically what happens is doctors implant more than one embryo in female uterus. The growth of embryo is not guaranteed. It is upto embryo, it might grow and it might not. If all implanted embryos grow then you can have more than one child. An embryo can also split. Thus, spiting to make more than one baby. But it all depends upon patients luck. Nothing is guaranteed in IVF or any other fertility treatment. I hope this helps.
