Out of curiosity, what would be the MAX # of embryos that could be transferred in a woman age 42/43 with 5 previous losses? I've heard of woman having up to 7, but not sure if that's ever done here in Canada. I would like to have the MAX # possible put back because I have had so many losses in the past.

I had 6 embryos put in at age 41 to get my beautiful twin boys. This was carefully considered and recommended by the incomparable Dr Hudson after my history of losses and BFNs (see my signature). I wonder if the IVIG made the real difference though. Good luck, Gillian.
