Just read in the new Elle magazine an article about a 43 yr old woman who wanted a 2nd child and thought she would go straight to IVF, but her insurance required her to do IUI first, which she did with gonal-f and became pregnant with twins. she did not want twins, so made the choice to have a selective reduction, and even choice what sex to keep! her reasoning for doing this was to preserve her quality of life,specifically her marriage (since her husband seemed very against twins) and finances. i found this so strange and would think that if you want a 2nd child bad enough to turn to fertility technologies where there is a risk of multiples, you would accept that risk and role with what you got, unless of course your life was in danger (triplets or more). would you have a selective reduction from twins to single if twins weren't really in your plan?
