Single-embryo transfer (SET) removes the risk of multiples in in vitro fertilization (IVF), but women with unfavorable IVF prognosis have been dissuaded from SET despite their desire to avoid multiples. In our clinic, 54% of the women who requested SET delivered healthy singletons, even though only two of them had met the American Society for Reproductive Medicine's SET guidelines. This demonstrates the value of encouraging patient-driven SET.
