I Thought Having Twins Would Be Good And Wanted Ivf But Doctor Said No Why
Increased risks: Multiple births increase risks for both mother and child because the uterus is designed really for only one baby.

If chances of conception increase in 2 embryo transfer IVF Why doc recomend single embryo?what are risks of 2 embryo apart from twins?
It's all about twins: Twins are a little bit trickier pregnancy. Twinning with 2 embryos is as high as 20-30%. In the US the ASRM allows 1 or 2 embryos in a 29 year old woman, but recommends only one. Personally I believe this is patient's choice and do NOT recommend 1 vs. 2, but that's me. Your info says you are 29 and in the UK? I do not know the UK standard of care but the science is the same. Best wishes! ...Read more
My husband's been married before & has had a vesectomy. We're looking at the best options for a baby. He's older & we thought IVF twins? Suggestions?
IVF: By far ivf is the best option. Surgically reversing the vasectomy may not work and so surgically removing sperm to use with ivf is by far your best option. As far a twins, a single pregnancy is also preferable to multiple pregnancy for many reasons. Ivf can but does not need to increase the risk of twins. ...Read moreSee 5 more doctor answers

Is it better to transfer two good quality embryo in ivf if you want to conceive twins,or will it decrease the chances of conception?
It could be possible: There can be many explanations for a failed ivf cycle, and in most cases, the exact cause can not be determined. It is not uncommon for us to see women who have conceived naturally after having failed ivf in the past. But often it takes a significant amount of time to have this pregnancy. Ivf does not guarantee pregnancy, and failure does not mean that you can't conceive naturally. ...Read more
Discuss with Ur OBDr: IVF should only be considered if U have problems conceiving naturally. IUI should be considered before IVF for both hetero or same sex couples. Most fertility Drs perfporming IVF advise implanting 2 IVF embryos to increase chances of having baby & nowadays probably more twins born after IVF than by natural conception. However, as other Drs point out, there is somewhat increased risk having twins ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Can i get IVF to better my chances of having twins? I really want twins in the future. Just wondering..
Unethical : You will be hard pressed to find any infertility doctor whose goal is twins or more as this places all the fetuses at a higher risk for a whole host of complications. Realize too, that insurance won't cover infertility treatments without a documented medical reason, and these types of treatments are exceptionally expensive. ...Read more

Sorry, no: The fertilized egg must either completely separate during cell division ("identical") or the ovary must happen to release multiple oocytes which get fertilized in same time proximity ("fraternal"). Neither of these phenomena are able to be externally encouraged via natural methods. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Can anyone use IVF and ask for twins? My partner has depression and is on medication. We both have been trying for 6 months with no luck.
Yes but: There is more ivf going on now because it is more accepted and the rates of infertility are increasing (that's another post). But also to blame are some societal reasons like increasing maternal age at birth- older mothers are more prone to twinning. Also because of improved neonatal care, twins are more likely to survive and reach reproductive age and that increases odds of more twins. ...Read more
