How many embryos should I transfer?

The decision as of the number of embryos for transfer is usually made based on a number of factors: patient’s age, number of IVF/ICSI attempts, percentage of multiple pregnancies and patient’s feelings regarding the number to transfer. Our doctor usually will recommend transferring more than 3 embryos if the patient is more than 35 or have had several unsuccessful IVF/ICSI attempts. This is because as patient aged, the embryo quality declines, therefore transferring more than 3 embryos will give a better chance of success.
