Hi, I'm about to start first cycle of icsi in nov Only due to dh vascectomy. My fs
said she will only transfer one embryo.
My question is, is it possible in icsi, for one embryo to split causing identical twins just like a natural pregnancy as twins are very common in my family history

Twins from icsi

Yes definitely, the one icsi embryo has the same chance as a naturally conceived embryo of splitting to create identical twins.

I Opted to transfer only one at a time as identical twins are on both sides for dh and I. ... Only to find out later that it is not genetics that determines if the embryo splits, but luck. No mater how many are in your family history.Regardless though, a friend has twins from her single transfer after icsi/FET. Her research found that there was a higher chance of splitting if the embryo was frozen, hatched blastocyst (day 5), which is what she had.I think I found identical twins were about 3 % in all pregnancies, but chances of identical twins after ivf was only 1 or 2 % higher than that overall.

Yes! There is a lady in the news recently from the US. They transferred 2, and now they are expecting QUADS! Crazy.

Mine split into identical twins from icsi. But identicals are in no way hereditary, fraternal twins (non identical) can be. Identicals are just fluke.
