My wife and I were able to harvest 11 embryos (12 total, one didn't take). We used two embryos the first time we tried IVF and were unsuccessful. We moved and had the remaining 9 embryoes transported to OHSU. AFter another year we tried again. They thawed out 4 embryos, two of which were damaged. We used all four and got one perfect little girl.
Out of 12 embryos, it took 7 to get one child. Any amount of the remaining 5 could be damaged. We plan on using the last five sometime in the future to try and have another child (or however many we get).
These are wanted, planned pregnancies. There are hundreds of thousands of unplanned pregnancies every year. Regulate those before you regulate planned pregnancies for people who really want to have children.
