    Default Has anyone transferred 2 x embryos?

    I have read all the statistics, but am interested in real life experiences!

    Has anyone transferred 2 embryos which resulted in a BFP (or even multiples?).


    OUR STORY:
    My first ICSI cycle saw us transfer 2 x day3 embies which resulted in a singleton. I was only 29 when we started IVF, but my AMH was through the floor (1.8) so my RE suggested we put two back in at day 3. The remaining embryos didn't make it to freezing.
    My AMH has dropped since then and we have decided to try for #2 before its too late. My RE doesn't want to change anything from last cycle, including the 2 embie transfer.

    I have heard that the chances of multiples increases if you transfer 2x day 5 vs. 2x day 3...although we like the idea of twins, realistically I know there are much higher risks involved & that scares me.
    Ultimately I realise there is a huge chance it will all results in a BFN too!!

    Has anyone been through this themselves? I would love to hear your thoughts.

    Hi @Aqua85, we did an overseas donor egg cycle, transferring 2 x day 5 blastocysts (one hatching). This resulted in a triplet pregnancy - they were born on 6 March at 34w5d gestation. I don't know the stats for this type of result, but was advised by our OS Dr that it only happens once a year, and that these are his first Australian triplets.

    I had two embies put back @ 5 days resulting in twins.
    No issues. Born at 37 +5.
    We had unexplained fertility and this was our 8th cycle. Mix of frozen and fresh cycles. I was 36 when I conceived.

    I had 2 OE embies put back in first cycle.. Resulting in a single girl.. Last overseas donor egg cycle.. There was no way I was putting in more than 1 x 5aa blast due to risk of multiples. I am 20 weeks pregnant with a girl.

    I had double transfers of 5 day embies twice, both resulting in BFN. I then had a double 3 day transfer which resulted in twins. Unfortunately I lost them at 17 weeks.

    I had 2 x 3d embryos put back fresh resulting in a single girl. Not doing any more than 1 at a time for baby #2; hubby is terrified of getting multiples when we already have a toddler 😂

    I transferred two day 5 embryos this last cycle, however one was grade A, and the other grade C, so I was pretty certain I wouldn't have twins. They basically said the grade C wasn't suitable for freezing so rather than throw it away, put it back in - resulted in singleton pregnancy. I would have been thrilled with twins if it were to happen though. I think it's something you and your partner need to be 100% comfortable with. I have heard about studies that show putting one embryo back is actually more successful than two (there is a thread about it on here somewhere) so that is something to think about as well.

    I transferred 2 embryos. 1 started but didn't progress. The other split into identical twins ❤❤ It was our very first round of IVF. Never say never! If you decide to go ahead with 2, seriously consider the possibility of twins or triplets. We were absolutely sure of our decision and it's been awesome. But twins (or more) are a real chance.

    My first round of IVF was a double transfer of 5aa embies one hatching. = singleton.

    Fet only had one to transfer back = BFN.

    IVF 2 only resulted in 2 embies and did a double transfer = BFN.
