Best practice for single embryo transfer

To implement best practice for single embryo transfer (SET), centres and clinics should follow the latest guidelines and have an appropriate policy/protocol in place. It is also important that if SET is offered and the initial treatment is unsuccessful, frozen follow-up treatment (freezing and storage of embryos followed by further SET) is offered. Centres should be aware of the increased risk of twins with blastocyst transfer and consider the use of eSET as routine where appropriate.
