Does immunology dictate how many blasts to transfer?

Hi. I am about to be 44 and just found out I have silent endo and had it removed by excision (Pillitteri). From my prior retreivals, we have only 2 non tested blastocysts left. I've never been pregnant. I'm doing IVIG and prior to my FET will likely be on 20 mg Pred and 40 mg Lovenox and baby aspirin (no clotting issues, but restricted blood flow). My question is: is there an immunilogical reason to transfer the 2 blasts individually or together? It feels to me like if I put both in at once, my immune system would react more strongly and attack them vs putting one in. Does it matter and why or why not? This is my last shot. Thank you for taking the time to read.

no I do not beleive transferring 2 embryos is an issue here. In fact a good embryo can help a bad embryo but not the other way around. Who and how was the immune protocol developed?
