Single Embryo Transfer vs. Double Embryo Transfer in an Oocyte Donation Programme

This study has been terminated.
(Due to the high number of multiples pregnancies in the double embryo transfer group, we have decided to stop the enrollment of patients at 07/31/2012)

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Cumulative pregnancy rate [ Time Frame: at 12 months of fresh embryo transfer (time considered enough in order to do a minimum of one frozen-thawed cycle if pregnancy is not achieved with the fresh cycle ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
