3 embryos transferred today day 5 blastocyst

Hope45 profile image

Hello everyone,

2nd round of ivf. Went for my transfer today day 5, and to my amazement the embryologist decided to put back all 3 give me the maximum chance of pregnancy given my age is 45. I am so so scared of multiple pregnancy. Has anyone else had 3 embryos transferred together. I was assured its very unlikely we will have multiple pregnancies. Less than 1% chance still very frightened. Has anyone else had a similar situation. Would love to know.

Wish me luck ladies

Thanking you all for your support

Hey lady,

I've looked at lots of online research and twins seem to stop at 41 - with all the studies I've seen showing maximum of 10% at that age. Ladies on here who've had multiple embryos transferred - still single pregnancy.

Having three transferred has just done wonders for your likelihood of one sticking.

I'm going to put as many in as possible if I get any blastocysts - but I won't know that for another week.

Well done!

I’ve got a friend who had IVF twins at 47 so multiples passed 41 is possible! Good luck and fingers crossed for you hun x

Thankyou for sharing.

I had a double transfer, I'm 30 with no known issues (unexplained IF) and have ended up pregnant with a single baby. Having a multiple transfer just gives you the best chance of one sticking. I really hope you get your positive 🤞🏻x

Not sure what you mean by screening. I had growth hormone during my IVF cycle (more for egg quality than quantity) and had tested my natural killer cells which were high. Normally one treatment if NKC is Humira but I couldn't have that so had some drugs that are usually used for transplant patients to lower my immune system. We had a blood test at 11 weeks pregnant to test health of baby - all came back negative which is good. The things we do!

I had 3 day 3 embryos put back on my first cycle last year aged 41. I got my 8 month old son out of it. xx

Good luck!I hope all went well with you?

Sadly it was a BFN.Iv cried my heart out and this is the end of the journey for me.Thank you for checking in on me.

Good decision! Very unlikely to have multiple and increases your chances of having your little one! That’s what my doctor recommends too for older woman. Good luck!
