What are the chances of twins with donor eggs?

By Rebeca Reus.
Last Update: 05/19/2017

The chances of twins with egg donation are higher than in normal IVF cycles using the woman’s own eggs due to the young age of donors, which translates into very healthy oocytes. This is the reason why multiple embryo transfers are unadvisable.

On average, if more than one embryo is transferred, the likelihood of becoming pregnant with twins is about 40%, while the chances of carrying triplets or greater is roughly 4%.
