Single Embryo Transfer
When first considering IVF treatment, it’s common for patients to have concerns about the possibility of getting pregnant with multiple babies. While many fertility practices strive to reduce triplet pregnancy rates, even twin pregnancies carry additional risks to both mother and babies. For babies, these risks include premature delivery, gastrointestinal infection, respiratory issues, internal hemorrhaging, and developmental delays. For mothers, there is an elevated risk of developing conditions such as gestational diabetes and hypertension or needing to be hospitalized before delivery.
To prevent a multiple pregnancy, the doctors of RMA of New York at CareMount often recommend elective single embryo transfer (eSET). Not only does eSET offer high pregnancy rates, but it also helps to protect the health of both mother and child. By utilizing Preimplantation Genetic Testing (PGT), we are able to identify healthy, chromosomally normal embryos with greater than 98% accuracy. By selecting a single optimal embryo, we can offer patients high implantation and pregnancy rates, while minimizing the chance of miscarriage and pre-term delivery. Additionally, through the use of vitrification, our facility can cryopreserve (freeze) the remaining embryos for use in future pregnancy attempts (e.g. siblings).
