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%.

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
