### Figure 47: What is the risk of having a multiple-fetus pregnancy or multiple-infant live birth from an ART cycle using fresh donor eggs?

Figure 47 depicts two pie charts, A and B, representing the risks of having multiple-fetus pregnancy and the risks of having multiple-infant live birth from ART cycles using fresh embryos from donor eggs, 2007.

• Pie chart A represents 6,609 pregnancies
• Singletons: 52.3%
• Total multiple-fetus pregnancies 42.6%, which is subdivided as follows:
• Twins: 38.8%
• Triplets or more: 3.8%
• Not able to determine number of fetuses because the pregnancy ended in an early miscarriage: 5.2%
• Note: Total does not equal 100% due to rounding.

• Pie chart B represents 5,692 live births
• Singletons:  59.7%
• Total multiple-infant live births 40.3%, which is subdivided as follows:
• Twins: 38.5%
• Triplets or more: 1.8%

### Figure 48: How do percentages of transfers that result in live births differ for ART cycles between women who use frozen donor embryos and those who use fresh donor embryos?

Figure 48 is a bar graph representing percentages of transfers that resulted in live births and singleton live births for ART cycles using frozen donor embryos and ART cycles using fresh donor embryos, 2007.

• Frozen donor embryos is subdivided into the following two categories:
• Transfers resulting in live births, 31.9%
• Transfers resulting in singleton live births, 24.3%
• Fresh donor embryos is subdivided into the following two categories:
• Transfers resulting in live births, 55.1%
• Transfers resulting in singleton live births, 32.9%
