Single embryo transfer
Within the assisted reproduction techniques we can find In Vitro Fertilization (IVF), whose final step consists of the transfer of the embryo into the mother’s uterus. Statistically, it could be said that the greater the number of embryos transferred, the greater the probability of pregnancy, and some studies even spoke years ago of a synergy between embryos that helped in the implantation.
However, it is important to take into account that by transferring several embryos the possibilities of multiple pregnancy increase and this, especially when the woman’s age is advanced, can lead to various risks and complications such as prematurity in childbirth, hypertension, pre-eclampsia and other risks for both the mother and the baby.
Although it is true that Spanish Assisted Reproduction legislation allows for the transfer of a maximum of 3 embryos, at Clinica Tambre we advocate for single embryo transfer at blastocyst stage. At this stage, which is presented on day 5, and thanks to the confidence we have in our technologies and techniques, such as the use of the GERI® embryo incubator or Pre-implantation Genetic Screening, we have the capacity to see the viability and development of the embryos, in order to later opt for the one with the greatest implantation capacity. In this way, the chances of pregnancy are increased, guaranteeing you a safe pregnancy and a healthy baby.
