IVF - transfer day

We will be attending for tests and to meet the consultant in a few weeks time.
I have a question please if you can help. Do you have a policy or restrictions on numbers of embryos that can be transferred? Is the choice our own? Thank you

Our Expert's Answer

Please note that all the answers we give are on a generic basis only, as we cannot provide more in-depth answers without access to your medical history. If you need a more detailed response, tailored to you, we would recommend a consultation with one of our Fertility Specialists for more comprehensive medical advice.

The number of embryos to transfer are based on the regulations in the UK, a patients age and embryo quality.  If you are young and it is your first treatment we would strongly advise you to have a single embryo transferred.  If you have had a previous cycle and are under 40 you may be able to have 2 embryos transferred.  It is not possible to transfer more than 2 embryos unless you are over 40 and then we would only ever transfer 3 in exceptional circumstances. If you please need any further information please call our New Patient Team on 0161 300 2737.
