Elective transfer of two embryos: Reduction of multiple gestations while maintaining high pregnancy rates
In IVF and oocyte donation, the elective transfer of 2 embryos resulted in similar pregnancy rates and significantly reduced multiple gestation rates when compared to the electives transfer of 3 embryos.
