Elective single blastocyst transfer

Fertil Steril. 2004 Jun;81(6):1697-8. doi: 10.1016/j.fertnstert.2003.10.050.


This report describes our initial experience with elective single blastocyst transfer in 19 patients who had a mean age of 36.3 +/- 2.4 years. The ongoing pregnancy rate, 53% after the fresh embryo transfer and 68% when thaw cycles are included, suggests that single blastocyst transfer has a place in this relatively older patient population.
