Why Does IVF Increase the Odds of Having Twins?

Even though twin pregnancies are often carried to term, there are some risks to both mother and child. These pregnancies have a higher chance of resulting in premature births and complications at birth. Twin pregnancies can occur naturally, however, they can also be a result of transferring multiple embryos during an IVF cycle. This video will further explain the risks of having twins in IVF procedures and the methodology of curbing the risks in various situations. For this reason, many fertility specialists will opt for Single Embryo Transfer (SET) with the goal of achieving a healthy pregnancy and delivery.
