There have been an increase at the rate of virgin babies born in the last five years, according to British IVF firms. Laura Donnelly, an Health Editor of The Telegraph said "they had assisted in such cases, for a cost of £5,000.00."

Maha Ragunath, medical director of its clinic in Nottingham said "a lot of them are very young, in their 20s, sometimes studying or doing very ordinary jobs and even living with their parents. They desire more with these things-having babies rather than women of those who have been driven and focused too much in their work."

Most of these women are afraid of sexual intercourse, and wanted it to happen at the right decision. However, some of them wanted to have a baby even without morally married.

Professor Robert Winston said "test-tube babies could suffer terrible health problems because the clinics were using IVF techniques which had not been properly tested."

He added, that the risk could include birth defects, genetic damage which may not emerge until adulthood and an increased chance of cancer. The medical profession was ignoring the evidence of problems that could take place.

Aside from that, he stressed the long-term attack of IVF, and follows a growing body of evidence that test tube babies are less healthy than the naturally conceived children.

Conversely, another study had been generated by Lord Winston at over three million normal conceptions and 40,000 IVF babies that found that IVF babies were two and half times more likely to have a low birth weight and prematurity compared to those babies with normal reproduction. Since it is not 100% guaranteed, it can lead to unsuccessful birth cycle.

Winston even stated, that small babies are more likely to grow up to develop vascular disease, diabetes, hypertension and osteoporosis.
