    Apparently the donor did 'very well' but waiting to hear numbers still. Saw a very attractive young lady hopping out of the lift who looked very much like our donors pictures. But a grown up version. Very nice figure too. Fit the description perfectly.

    Leyshoja - hope you got lots of eggs from your donor. I wonder if that was your donor? We tried to check out our donor when we were there - looking like obsessed psychos checking out all the girls in the waiting room to find her!

    This photo looks like Mountain Marina apartments? Oh I miss it there looking at this. Just showed hubby & if we go back we will stay there again - stunning.

Sounds like a good theory to me anyway and worth the extra $400 or so that it cost. Cheaper than a trip back to SA anyway.
    Leyshoja,
    Crabby and I both thought the same thing with the first round in February. I think of it like a souffle, every time you open the oven door, you risk the shuffle crashing. If you watch through the window, it comes out perfectly.

    To be honest it's because they are high quality embryos based on young DNA.

    If you transfer more than one high quality embryo you risk multiple births. That has always been the case and why multiples aren't encouraged generally (you could get triplets).

    Embryoscope may slightly improve chances but realistically it's younger DNA and therefore better embryos. A statistical game.

    It would also reduce time for reviewing embryos, and yes, leave them in a stable environment. If the DNA is good you should get good embryos.

    Implantation is embryologic and maternal in nature. Naturally there is only 25% per cycle chance of getting pregnant.

    Octomum did not use embryoscope. It's purely numbers and quality when it comes to DE.. Maternal factors cannot be controlled. Embryoscope cannot fundamentally change/improve the underlying quality of egg/sperm and resultant embryo.

    Multiples always come with higher risk and complicated pregnancies. There are also other significant developmental issues that may need treatment including poor quality tooth development which is expensive to correct in toddlers. Twins on this forum are totally related to double transfers and not embryoscope.

    Totally agree. You are getting younger eggs and from what ive read can assist in some mfi issues. Even if you get smallish numbers you are still in with a good chance of getting great embies.

    Default Egg Donation in South Africa #9

    What were the stats for twins last year? Compared to singleton pregnancy after two embryo transfer? CFC routinely put two back unless you ask for different and suspect donor ages are as young this year and last year. Of course prob won't be statistically significant but there has been a lot of twins so far this year and can't remember reading about so many from last year......but memory like a sieve .....😀

    Massive increase in twins this year.
    I for one choose to believe in the fantastical capabilities of the Embryoscope.
