Response to how many embies to transfer
So when my DH and I were deciding recently whether to transfer 1 or 2, I called my doctor to try to get a some facts or stats to help us decide. He said that so far his data pool is way too small to produce any scientifically meaningful stats, and that there are no studies to date to test this, but he offered an "guestimate" based on his observations and experience with his patients. And I'm sure he certainly did not intend his answer to be shared with others and taken as some kind of rule of thunb. So please take it with all the necessary caveats. But he said that in our situation (we had great quality 5-day blasts, my lining was great, etc.) transferring 2 instead of 1 might increase our odds of success by 5%, but that came with a 40% chance of twins. For us, that made it crystal clear that an eset was right for us.
Thought I'd share in case this is helpful. Good luck!! Let us know what you decide.
