IVF treatment involves replacing one or more embryos into the uterine cavity. Hence, there is a higher chance of multiple pregnancy which can be twins or higher order. The risk of multiple pregnancy is much higher when transferring more than one embryo at day 5 or blastocyst stage than with day 2 or 3 cleaved stage transfer.
