Washington DC-area IVF Specialist Suheil Muasher, MD Addresses Fears of Infertility Treatments after Octuplet Mom News
Date:3/17/2009

e a multiple pregnancy, he tells patients at his Washington DC / Fairfax, Virginia-area infertility clinic that multiple pregnancy, even twins, carries a higher risk of complications for both babies and mother. “Even though many of our patients want to have twins, there is no justification in increasing the number of embryos transferred as this will also increase the number of triplets and higher order multiple pregnancy. In favorable patients who are younger than 37 years old the incidence of twins is approximately 20 to 25%, per total pregnancies, with the transfer of two embryos.”

Since the ASRM first issued its guidelines in 1997, multiple pregnancies from IVF treatments have been on the decline. In the wake of the “Octuplet Mom” story, some have asked if there should be laws restricting the number of embryos a reproductive endocrinologist can transfer during an IVF procedure. Although Dr. Muasher does not believe there should be strict laws limiting the number of embryos, he says most specialists adhere to the ASRM guidelines. “In the US, we are lucky that medical decisions are left to the patient and her doctor. In some other countries strict laws have lead to negative outcomes and are not necessarily in the patient’s best interests. However, the medical community needs to speak out whenever there is a situation when the practice of medicine deviates a lot from the standard of care, as it was in this case.”
