One Embryo or Two?

A few days ago DH and I went through the IVF process with my RE.  Afterwards, we read a ton of stuff online.  But we are still undecided about one thing.  If we are able to get a good number of embryos, should we transfer one or two of them?  It would seem to make sense that you transfer two embryos, given how frustrating the whole fertility process is, and the uncertainty of getting pregnant again a few years from now.  BUt then I read more articles stating that having multiples also increases complications during pregnancy and that for anyone under 35, one embryo should be enough.


Would you want to transfer two embryos, knowing that there's a greater chance of conceiving twins (and with it greater pregnancy complications) or would you transfer only one embryo, hoping that this one will be a success?
