    We are facing this decision ourselves with our final cycle in December.
    We have only ever had 1 embryo transferred at a time.
    Our first fresh transfer bfn.
    Our second transfer was frozen and resulted in our ds.
    Our remaining embryos didn't survive the thaw.
    An new cycle, fresh transfer resulted in our ds2.
    Our remaining frozen embryo didn't survive the thaw.

    So now we are doing our final cycle in December and are faced with whether we should have 2 embryos transferred to give us that little more chance even though the chance doesn't increase all that much having multiple embryo's transferred but still when considering my age now, the fact our remaining embryo's mostly haven't been successful in thawing and the fact we really would like this to be our last ever time at ivf should we take the chance and have 2 transferred and see what happens? also the solution used now may give our embryo's that little more chance too. What to do? What to do?

    We did 4 frozen cycles with 1 transferred each time and all were BFN. Our last FET we did a double transfer of day 5 embys and got our first BFP (on a lot of new meds also) with our now 3 week old baby girl.

    I think unless the specialist recommends it stick with one.
    The risks associated with twins means you have a lower 'take home' baby rate with two transferred if they stick.
    They're frozen, they'll wait.

    Hi jb, I just had my third transfer last week which was a day 3 DET. My two previous cycles were both inplantation failure. On this cycle I only got six eggs but 100% fertilization.

    My clinic only does 2 and 3 day fresh transfers but grows to blast to freeze excess embryos. By day three we only had two left and my FS agreed that with the demise of the other four (all became multi nucleated), the chance of the remaining two growing to blast for freezing was slim so we transferred both. If I had more to choose from and some to freeze my decision would have been different. We were informed that the increased chance of twins was around 6%.

    I had 2 frozen embryos transferred on day 3 and that resulted in my twins. I had a pretty easy pregnancy so I was very lucky, don't regret the decision at all.

    Out of curiosity, at what gestation were they born? Natural or induced?

    I found out last week that I'm pregnant from transferring 2 day 3 embryos. I won't know for a couple of weeks whether one or two are in there, but my HCG level is through the roof. We had one perfect embryo and one ok one that they wouldn't have frozen, so we thought it was worth transferring both. At this stage I think we made the right decision

    37 weeks. Not induced, spontaneous labour. I would have been induced the following day though.

    Thank you so much to everyone for your replies, I really appreciate it. Congratulations to those of you who got your BFP - so nice to hear happy news!

    We have a big decision to make and I guess it'll come down to how many embryos we have left on day 3 and what quality they are. My preference is a double transfer but will see how things go.

    Picking up injections on Friday and for the 1st time this cycle is just between me and DH - no other family or friends know we are doing it... I can keep my mouth shut. Very thankful for BH
