More is not Merry! Proposal to Ration Embryo to Women having IVF

The fertility caretaker must get its act together to check the perilous trend of twin and triplet births. A recent proposal to the department has suggested a cap on the// embryo, allowing only one embryo at a time.

An expert panel set in motion by the Human Fertilization and Embryology Authority (HFEA) has suggested that the number of embryos implanted in the womb should be reduced from two to one for patients who are not on the wrong side of 30.

Further IVF clinics will do good to be more cautious about the number of twin births, as there will be a check on the centers that are habitually overshooting twin birth rate of 5 to 10 per cent. Such clinics will attract further restrictions on embryo transfer, and in the worst case, may even forfeit their licenses.

Professor Peter Braude of King’s College London, said 'We have got to do more to reduce the twin rate, as multiple birth is the single biggest risk to the health and welfare of a child born by IVF.Women should ideally be having healthy babies, one at a time.'

The HFEA is still incubating on the proposals, though there is ample hint that the recommendations will see the light of day. Peter Bowen-Simpkins of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists said: 'A decision to recommend single embryo transfer to women under the age of 35 is a pragmatic step forwards, in an attempt to reduce the incidence of multiple pregnancies, with its associated morbidity to both the babies and the mother.'
