Hi. I just found your boards and am so impressed that you would offer your expertise here. Thank you. I will be attempting an FET cycle this month with two 8 cell embies, three 6 cell , and one 5 cell frozen at this time. We were fortunate to get pg on our first fresh IVF cycle when we transfered 2 8-cell resulting in twins. In your opinion, should we transfer both 8-cell for our 1st FET? We would really like a singleton pg, because of risks,etc. What do you think the stats of success would be? Thanks

Oh, I forgot; the 8 cell embies are considered Fair quality which was the same with our successful IVF cycle, but they told me at the lab that it is a good idea to do both as they are frozen in the same straw too. The three 6 cell and 5 cell are frozen together. What do you think about my chances for pg with twins?

The pregnancy rate for FETs is about half that of fresh ETs for any given clinic. I'd say go with the two 8-cells. Your chance of twins from transferring two frozen-thawed 8-cell embryos is very low, not zero, but very low.

Best of luck.
