How Many Eggs Should You Transfer if You Are an Older Mom?


The Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology (SART) just published the results of their study that looked at how to best predict the success of a woman getting pregnant using IVF. They used data from more than 5500 IVF cycles between the years of 2000-2004 of women over the age of 37. Here is what they found…….

For 38-39 year old women, using 2 embryos instead of 1 increased the chances of getting pregnant and successfully giving birth.

For 38-39 year old women, using more that 2 embryos did not increase the chances of giving birth, however it did increase their chances of having multiple babies.

For 40 year old women, using 3 embryos increased their chances of giving birth, but did not increase their chances of having multiple babies.

For 41-42 year old women, using more than 2 embryos did not increase the likelihood of giving birth, but did increase the chances of having twins once pregnant.
