Notes from the world of IVF

There appears to be a trend among women who start their family at an older age to seek in vitro fertilization not as a solution to infertility, but as a way to achieve their ultimate family size goals with one pregnancy. Separate articles on this subject have appeared recently from England and Australia.

Meanwhile Sweden will soon pass a resolution allowing lesbian couples access to the same state-sponsored IVF treatments that heterosexual couples have.

Gay or straight, as of next month you can’t get IVF in Wales if you or your partner is a smoker. Compliance will be tested with a blood sample.
