Dear Esty

There is no guarantee as to the number of babies that will be born using in-vitro fertilization. On average if three embryos are transferred then a triplet pregnancy can result, twin pregnancy can result, single pregnancy can result or no pregnancy at all can result using in-vitro fertilization. If however one requires boys then you would require in addition to in-vitro fertilization a procedure called Pre-genetic diagnosis (PGD). In this process the embryos are assess form the chromosomal content and then only male embryos are then transferred back into the uterus.
