Yes, indeed, it can and should be avoided. Multiple pregnancy, in the past, was a complication that fortunately today has been overcome thanks to the progress and study of human assisted reproductive techniques. Nowadays, it is not advisable to maintain a cycle with a high risk of multiple pregnancy.

In the case in question, if during the course of ovarian stimulation three or more follicles develop, the situation will be redirected to maintain the stimulation and the ovarian puncture will be programmed to extract and fertilize the eggs obtained in the laboratory and carry out the transfer of the embryos in successive deferred cycles.
