Octo Mom's Fertility Doctor Implanted 49-Year-Old With Seven Embryos

The fertility doctor that helped Nadya Suleman give birth to octuplets also provided treatment to a 49-year-old woman who is pregnant with quadruplets, the Los Angeles Times reports. Sources tell the newspaper that Dr. Michael Kamrava implanted at least seven embryos from younger donor eggs into the woman, who is currently hospitalized. "I do think it is concerning, and dangerous, especially to the mother," a doctor familiar with the case told the Times. "She is close to 50. When women get to be that age, our fear is the cardiovascular complications, such as stroke or heart attack. That’s how serious this is." Meet the octuplets! Suleman told the Today Show's Ann Curry she was implanted with six embryos, some of which split. Kamrava is under investigation by the California Medical Board and American Society for Reproductive Medicine, which recommends women under 35 are implanted with no more than two embryos. See Us' baby bump hall of fame. Meanwhile, Suleman's publicist revealed death threats forced her to move into a rented house and out of the home she was sharing with her parents in southern California. The mother of 14 -- who is single, unemployed and receiving food stamps -- began asking for donations on her Web site Wednesday.

 I don't know much about IFV but isn't 6 or 7 embryos like more than the average number that is implanted when you have IFV??

I have 2 friends that are going though IFV treatments and both their doctor's told them that they would not implant more than 2 at a time.

Careful now, all the defenders will be up soon, and THEN we'll be accused of "hating" on the doctor!  He just has a right to make money!  *sigh* this doctor is a TOOL.

I think they should make the dr. responsible for paying for all of her kids, and not let her be on welfare.

The Dr. is being investigated, thank goodness.
