Afternoon everyone, just looking for some help from a newbie.
DH & I are both 36, turning 37 early next year, 3 previous cycles in 2008 (1st cycle BFP, stopped growing at 7w, 2nd & 3rd BFN) but had to take extended break for multiple other family and business related reasons. Now changed from MIVF to Monash (Clayton) to start fresh.
DH has absent vasa (CF carrier) so ICSI is our only option, I have had total thyroidectomy (Graves disease), also carrying a bit too much weight which I'm having trouble losing. We had discussed and agreed to give 2 embryos a go if we had two good quality after EC. IVF specialist and nurse have both advised against it, but we're desperate to get a successful BFP, was hoping doing 2 would give us more chance of that. I'm now starting to get worried that we shouldn't be trying multiple due to the risks they talked about.
My paternal grandfather was one of a set of twins, does this have any bearing on our chances of ending up with more than 1 fertilising or splitting?
Mixed responses from other medical professionals in my life so curious to see what people think that have been through similar situations? In an ideal situation I would have loved to have had twins and then we could be done with the IVF journey but now am getting worried about what risk I could be giving any potential viable embryos and also myself. But then scared about hopefully having successful PG now then going back to IVF again in a few years when I'll be older.
