The age limit ranges to 42-45 years in most of the programs. The egg donor’s age is very vital when there is a donation of the egg. There is generally no relation to the age of the donor with the success of fertilization.
Transferring of one embryo or multiple ones?
It depends on the patients how many embryos they decide to transfer. It is not always a successful implantation. The probability of pregnancy increases if there are more embryos. The risk of more pregnancies increases with multiple implantations of embryos. Generally, the number of embryo implantation depends upon the age of the patient and how many times they have undergone IVF before. If you are under 35 years, you can easily go for 2 embryo implants.
