Canadian doctors at the London Health Sciences Centre in London, Ontario, carried out research into the emotional factors that can drive a woman to one or either of these options.

Reporting at a major conference, they investigated the emotional state of 129 female infertility patients one month before IVF treatment.

The volunteers were asked about their mood states, their social, sexual and relationship stress and about whether they preferred to have a singleton, twin or triplet pregnancy, and which of these was considered more risky.
