Revised Guidelines Expanding Single Embryo Transfer Guidelines Result in Fewer Multiple Births at the Clinic Level and the National Level, Without a Decline in Live Birth Rates

Philadelphia, PA- Today, at the 75th Annual Scientific Congress and Expo of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine, researchers from the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development and Walter Reed National Military Medical Center presented results from a retrospective cohort study in which they compared Assisted Reproductive Technology outcomes in women under 38 years of age from the two years before and the two years after the 2017 revision of the ASRM/SART embryo transfer recommendations. The data showed a significant reduction in the number of embryos transferred and in twin pregnancy rates, but no reduction in over all live birth rates after the new recommendations were published and implemented.
