Authors' recomendations: Whilst for any one transfer, single embryo transfer (SET) has about a one-third loss of success rate relative to double embryo transfer (DET), this can be mitigated to some extent by selection of patients for SET. If outcomes are assessed over complete cycles, transferring all the good-quality embryos created, it is possible that the additional transfers available through repeated SET would produce more live births than repeated DET
