In my GCSE Biology book it says "IVF is more successful if the woman has previously been pregnant". Does it mean previously pregnant with IVF or normally?
Thanks

The book also says "one possible drawback of successful IVF is an increased possibility of multiple births, as more than one embryo is implanted". Don't the doctors choose how many to implant? Can't they just implant one embryo?
Thanks

i’m not sure about your first question; but i think they insert a couple (3-5??) to increase the chances of a birth as theres no guarantee that any of the embryos will attach to the uterus once they’re implanted

normally. bc chances of successful IVF treatment are low for women who have difficulty with fertility in general.
