I am 22 years old, I am due to start my IVF soon, I was wondering if you will transfer two blastocysts instead of one because I want a higher chance of conceiving twins.

I would strongly advise you against a 2 blastocyst transfer at your age if it is your first time. At 22 years old you have a very good chance of conceiving. It is far safer to avoid the chance of a multiple pregnancy by replacing a single embryo as there is an increased risk to the babies’ health with premature birth and low birth rate. One healthy baby is what we are aiming for. Before you start your IVF cycle you need to speak about this to your Doctor.
