Busy career women are abandoning sex and seeking inappropriate IVF treatment to have instant babies, doctors have claimed.IVF is the test-tube baby procedure.
It is estimated that one in seven UK couples have difficulty conceiving. However, many women take up IVF treatment, before they discover this because they are simply too busy or tired to have sex.
Emma Cannon runs the fertility programme at Westover House clinic in London, which has seen a 20 per cent increase in the number of women seeking 'inappropriate' IVF.
She said: "People want everything now. If they can't have a baby now, they want IVF. They think it's no different from putting your name down for a handbag."
