"This case is very troubling for those of us who treat patients with infertility," Dr. Grifo says. "It's amazing that these babies were able to survive, but this is not a good outcome for anybody."
While there are no laws regarding embryo transfer, Dr. Grifo says the American Society of Reproductive Medicine's guidelines are clear.
- For a fresh embryo transfer in women under 35, no more than two embryos should be transferred.
- Age 35 to 37, no more than three embryos.
- Up to age 40, no more than four embryos.
- Over age 40, no more than five embryos.
