A new report on fertility methods suggests that the transfer of a single embryo into the uterus decreases the number of twin pregnancies without adversely affecting pregnancy outcomes. The authors stated that recent efforts have focused on transferring fewer embryos as a means of reducing the rising rate of twin pregnancies. Similar pregnancy outcomes have been seen in other studies, but a lower rate of twin births, after the transfer of a single embryo in women under the age of 37 years. Dr....

A new study found frozen embryos are just as healthy as fresh embryos when it comes to weight, risk of birth defects, and premature deliveries. Danish researchers presented their findings Tuesday during a meeting of the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology. Researchers studied 19,000 babies, and discovered frozen embryos added no risk of birth defect because only the strongest survive the freezing and thawing process. Dr. Anja Pinborg, a researcher at the Copenhagen...

Researchers in Australia and Greece are making strides in determining which test-tube embryos carry the highest chance of being successfully implanted in the womb and growing into healthy infants. Currently, no method exists to predict which of these embryos will attach themselves in the womb and progress on to healthy pregnancies. As a result, couples often have multiple embryos implanted to improve the chances of pregnancy, something that can lead to complicated multiple pregnancies that...
