just have some questions about IVF. My wife & I are going through our first round. They collected 13 eggs yesterday, & the egg implantation is happening on Monday. We were told this morning that 8 of the 13 eggs fertilized. My wife was told yesterday that only 1 embryo would be implanted because of her age (nearly 30 & reasonably healthy). She's really annoyed & upset because she wanted 2 implanted to increase chances of pregnancy.
I'm just wondering:
What are the chances of the first round working?
Is there increased odds of pregnancy with 2 embryos in our case?
Is there enough of a chance of the embryo splitting for only 1 embryo to be implanted?
Thanks very much. I want to give her some good news so she can stop worrying.
