MYTH: “IVF always results in twins and triplets.”

December 30, 2016 by Dr. Demián Glujovsky

Some weeks ago, the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) tweeted some myths about infertility. I found them very useful to reproduce here. I have already reproduced some of them. Look at this one.

MYTH #4: “IVF always results in twins and triplets.”

Fact: It is true that IVF treatment increases the risk of having multiple births; this is mostly due to the transfer of more than one embryo. However, recent advances in assisted reproductive technology have dramatically improved the odds of success with the transfer of only one embryo. It is important to choose your reproductive health specialist carefully by asking questions about success rates in achieving pregnancy while avoiding multiple births, which can be accompanied by greater health risks.
