One or Two Embryos?

We are lucky enough to have 14 good embryos frozen from our 29 year old donor. I had a fresh embryo transfer that resulted in a mc at 6 weeks.

as pp have said, this is a tough situation. I guess you have to decide which would be worse ... no pg, or twins. sounds like twins might be worse.

since you did conceive the first time, if the frozen embies are high quality, it may make sense to just transfer one. you do have a number of other embies, so you'll have another chance to transfer if this cycle fails.

good luck!!!

That is definately a difficult decision. We transferred one great quality embie per the doctor. BUT I am a very petite lady, 5'2 (110lb) so he was concerned with my body size and carrying twins.

G/L with your decision!

It's a tough choice. If you are not ok with twins, transferring 1 seems like the safe choice. We had no problem with the possibility of twins so we did transfer 2 but have 1 healthy DS as a result. Good luck with your decision
