I am no expert, but OP if you have been tested and are not a carrier of the CF gene, your baby shouldn't be a chance of having CF either, so PGD shouldnt be needed for that.

Gut feeling tells me it's probably better to just do one embryo, the risks don't sound worth it. I go in for my first BT and U/S on Tuesday 29th so I guess we'll know then how I'm tracking. Getting more than one embryo may not even be a factor!

Ive only read a few replys...so here goes...
Our clinic always transfered 2 to 3 embys with us...and it took the 18th transfer to get our first bfp which resulted in miscarriage. .and then number 20 a fresh double transfer resulted in our dd..... for ds again all double transfers. ...with our twins we actually had 3 transfered and were pregnant with triplets...but lost 1 baby.... i actually dont think multiple transfers is what gave us our babies its other factors and medications we used..... if i knew what i knew at transfer 18...at the beginning of the journey ...it wouldnt have taken 6 years for our first bfp.
Just my 2 cents 😊

A double transfer will increase your chance of a bfp but won't increase the chance of a take home baby. Just something to consider.

We transferred two due to age. One split and we have identical twins. The other began but didn't progress so we were certainly close to triplets. I had a great pregnancy and our girls have been calm 'easy' babies. Having said that. ...twins are massive work in the early days and its important to think carefully about the support you have around you. We didn't have anyone to help and it's been a LOT of work. Twin pregnancy certainly carries more risk and we were very lucky. If you have any other issues, such as weight etc, it might add to that risk a little too. Also think about cost. Buying two of lots of things ( especially when you aren't having more children to make use of them again) is super expensive. Twins are amazing and special and definitely worth it, but they aren't an ideal way to have kids so if you have time, a single seems safer and less pressure on you in the long run. And like others have said, i think transferring two only increases your chances by about 5 per cent anyhow.

My good friend had two embryo's transferred. She had to do a lot of previous cycles with just one though before the clinic agreed to it. On her last cycle she got 2 embryo's which were both unsuitable for freezing. Got told the odds were incredibly low but she was pregnant with twins from that cycle. I know she had an incredibly hard pregnancy & both bubs were born 12 weeks premature. She is such an incredible Mum but I know that it is very full on for her looking after twins. It's such a hard decision to make for you but I'd be guided by what your doctor recommends. Good luck with it
