How can multiple pregnancy from assisted reproductive technology be prevented?

By Manuel Fernández.
Last Update: 06/03/2011

There are lots of actions to be taken, most of them being implemented with increasing success.

As for in vitro fertilisation, a three-embryo transfer should be avoided: cases with a good prognosis should bet on a single embryo transfer instead. This requires a process of raising awareness not only by the couple undergoing the treatment but also by the professional team.

The “success” of an assisted reproductive treatment does not consist only on achieving pregnancy. More and more, we need to be aware that the ultimate aim should be having a healthy baby, that is to say, that the child is not born too early.

Despite changing this mindset may be difficult, we insist on the need to prevent multiple births.
