In Reply to: Number of embryos to transfer? (43 yrs old) posted by Chaya on July 25, 19100 at 21:20:10:

I recently turned 46 and have not been responding to fertility drugs. May I ask you, Chaya, what medications you were on, and what clinic you are going to which might not turn away us older gals. I would also like to ask a doctor what I might do to improve my response to fertility medications? I am now on the birth control pill. Thank you.

: 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?
