IVF For Single Women

In almost all human population there is a slight excess of males at the time of birth: 106 boys to 100 girls. In India, this ratio is skewed even further and out of proportion, of course in favour of the male child. In nature, this is because Y-containing sperm survive better within the female reproductive tract. In India this is due to female infanticide, female foeticide and now female embyrocide.

The technology of pre-implantational genetic diagnosis (PGD) may now be used for the sole purpose of sexing the pre-embryo for the selective destruction of the female pre-embryo. The only restraint that society may exercise is financial, because not all couples will have the finances to undergo in-vitro fertilisation, then discard precious pre-embryos.

There are many reasons why sex determination by PGD should not be encouraged, on ethical, medical and technical grounds. First, the medical issues. The ability to screen the DNA content of pre-embryos has resulted from the evolution of the assisted reproduction techniques and the development of sensitive genetic tools to probe the nucleus for a single gene. The entire set-up requires the presence of an assisted reproduction unit with acceptable pregnancy rates, a genetic diagnostic team, a geneticist and a counsellor - in short, a major financial and technical investment. In order to accurately diagnose the sex of the pre-embryo, techniques of Fluorescent In Situ Hybridisation (FISH) and Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) need to be exacting, reliable, sensitive and should avoid contamination with other sources of DNA.

The investment will not be rewarding to the doctor unless preimplantational sexing is carried out on a large scale. Couples undergoing IVF for infertility may even be told of this possibility, putting a greater financial burden on them and preventing them from trying again should the first attempt fail.

The woman would have to take medication and hormones for superovulation, bear the risk of ovarian hyperstimulation, undergo an operative procedure under anaesthesia, have the oocytes fertilised in the laboratory. After looking for fertilisation and then embryo cleavage, a single-cell embryo biopsy would have to be done at the 6-to-8-cell stage. The procedure of biopsy itself has a learning curve and in the process many embryos would be annihilated.


I am a single woman, can I have fertility treatment?

Yes. There has been an increase in the number of single women seeking IVF treatment along with lesbian couples.

It is seen as discriminatory to refuse treatment to single women because they don't have a male partner. However, this is seen as controversial by campaigners for the traditional family set up who see this as undermining the definition of a nuclear family.

There is also the problem of funding as some PCT's are hard pressed to fund couples never mind single people.

Discrimination against single women?

The drive to reproduce is a fundamental and powerful personal and societal force. It has been suggested that infertility can cause levels of depression equal to those associated with cancer (1). This may be as true for single women as for those who are married.

Australia has strong laws prohibiting discrimination, including that on the basis of marital status. While single women prepared to conceive children in the conventional manner may not be encouraged they are not prevented or penalised by law from doing so. However in Victoria both law and public policy have prevented single women (and men) from becoming parents through adoption or IVF. This has been seen by some as unjust and constituting discrimination under the law.

Interestingly it is only the relatively recent creation of legal adoption and the very recent development of reproductive technologies which have required the giving of permission to become a parent.

The current eligibility criteria for IVF treatment are several and stringent. Some married couples awaiting IVF treatment might be apprehensive that the gaining of access by single people could, by increasing demand substantially, exclude some of the married couple applicants from receiving service before reaching the age limit.

During IVF, a physician collects ova from the woman at the time of her ovulation, using a high-tech procedure called laparoscopy. In the next step the man's sperms and woman's egg are combined in a laboratory dish, where fertilization occurs. The resulting embryo is then transferred to the woman's uterus, for normal development in the uterus, or frozen for later implantation. Eggs can also now be frozen and fertilized later. The basic steps in an IVF treatment cycle are super ovulation (stimulating the development of more than one egg in a cycle), egg harvest, fertilization, embryo culture, and embryo transfer. Even though conceived differently than most, the baby does not look any different and, in fact, is no different from other babies.
