I have 12 year old triplets that are here via ivf....they were full term, completely healthy and I know how lucky I am for it. I realized the risks involved as I believe most candidates do as we researched it extensively before pursuing this treatment. My doctor made sure that my health was intact before transferring 6 viable embryos, with the 3 taking....again that was 12 years ago and there were less regulations at that time. Now I believe that 6 embryo transfers are too many, but I also feel that one is not enough as the person is already experiencing problems conceiving obviously....the medical advancements today are much more condusive to the survival of multiples and twins are not considered all that risky to a healthy mother anymore.
