: I'm 43 yrs old and had an IVF retrieval today. The Dr. said that 14 eggs were retrieved. If the embryos are of good quality, would I need to have the standard 4 embryos re-implanted, or would say 2 embryos be enough. One of my friends had triplets, and I cringe at the thought of going through what she went through. However, I do want to maximize my chances of success. Are there other factors besides age that can be considered?

Embryo quality is one of the indicators used to determine number of embryos to be reimplanted. Fragmented or poor quality have less chance of implanting than better quality. I don't know if that ranks higher in importance than age but I would express your concerns to RE. Good Luck
