IS MULTIPLE PREGNANCY POSSIBLE WITH IVF TREATMENT?

Turkey Medicals member and hospital department Obstetrics, Gynecology and In Vitro Fertilization Specialist Op. Dr. told the curious ones about whether multiple pregnancies are possible with IVF treatment in Antalya Turkey.

A multiple pregnancy can occur as a result of simultaneous fertilization of multiple eggs or as a result of cells dividing from one egg into two or more numbers forming separate embryos. In other words, if the number of babies is two or more, it is called a multiple pregnancy.

The primary purpose of IVF treatment is to ensure that couples have healthy babies. In the early days of IVF treatment, multiple pregnancies were common and some restrictions were applied to minimize the possibility of multiple pregnancies over time. For this purpose, a limit has been placed on the number of embryo transfers in IVF treatment. In many countries, the probability of having triplets and older babies has been minimized by determining the number of embryo transfers as 2.

Thanks to the Selected Single Embryo Transfer applied to people younger than 36 years of age, who are most often subjected to two trials and do not want to give birth to twins, the risk of multiple pregnancy is reduced and the rate of pregnancy formation is not reduced.

WHY IS MULTIPLE PREGNANCY NOT PREFERRED?

In multiple pregnancies, the expectant mother is more likely to gain weight. In multiple pregnancies, where nausea and vomiting are more common, the size of the expectant mother’s uterus and abdomen become larger than in a single pregnancy. Expectant mothers experiencing multiple pregnancies may experience iron deficiency problems, as well as B-HCG rates may be higher. The number of babies in multiple pregnancies is 6. it can be detected by ultrasound imaging performed after the week.

In multiple pregnancies, the mode of delivery is determined according to some factors such as the number of babies, their posture and the structure of the mother’s pelvis. Although there is a possibility of normal delivery in twin births, the choice of doctors is usually in favor of cesarean section in multiple pregnancies where triplets and quadruplets are involved.

There is a greater risk of still birth in multiple pregnancies. Hypertension, postpartum hemorrhage and cesarean delivery rate are also higher in multiple pregnancies compared to single pregnancies. In order to prevent possible risks for both the expectant mother and the babies during multiple pregnancies, doctor’s checks should be performed more often. Because the risk of premature birth is higher in multiple pregnancies than in single pregnancies, the mother should take care to rest, consume plenty of water, and follow the doctor’s recommendations completely.
