Multiple pregnancy is a known complication of in-vitro fertilization and embryo transfer (IVF-ET). It is usually associated with serious perinatal morbidity and/or mortality as well as significant maternal morbidity and efforts to reduce these has led to the concept of elective single embryo transfer (ESET) in developed countries, this concept has not been entrenched in the practice in Nigeria.
