Most patients have to undergo more than one treatment in order to achieve a live birth. Thus cumulative live birth rates are highly interesting to the patients. The most important health problem in IVF is the high rate of multiple births, leading to increased risks for preterm birth and perinatal morbidity. Therefore, single embryo transfer (SET) has become m... more
