Standard protocols for in-vitro fertilization (IVF) include transfer of two or three embryos. Not surprisingly, the rate of twin pregnancy after IVF is high (about 24% of all pregnancies). Routine transfer of one, rather than two, embryos would be expected to result in a much lower rate of twin pregnancies at the cost of a lower take-home baby rate. The aim of this study was to compare hypothetical costs to society incurred by pregnancies achieved with IVF protocols based on the transfer of one… CONTINUE READING
