AbstractThe popularity of in vitro fertilisation has continuously increased throughout the past 40 years owing to an increased incidence of infertility and delayed planning for pregnancy. The aim of this paper is to review the current situation of in vitro fertilisation in Hong Kong. In Hong Kong, in 2018, 7995 women underwent 5055 fresh and 5050 frozen-thawed embryo in vitro fertilisation cycles, resulting in an ongoing pregnancy rate of 33.7% per transfer. However, in vitro fertilisation is associated with several problems, including a high rate of multiple pregnancies and risks associated with cross-border reproductive care. Single embryo transfer is a simple strategy to reduce multiple pregnancies without compromising the cumulative live birth rate.
