Is there a high probability of having twins with IVF?

By Zaira Salvador.
Last Update: 04/20/2018

One of the general disadvantages of assisted reproduction treatments is the increased likelihood of twin pregnancy due mainly to the process of ovarian stimulation and the practice of transferring more than one embryo after IVF.

For this reason, the transfer of a single embryo is increasingly encouraged today, with the aim of reducing the multiple pregnancy rate and the risks involved. In the last 10 years, the double birth rate has already been reduced by 8% after assisted reproduction treatment.
