They all to have children, without success. The women all to special clinics for IVF treatment – a technique where doctors the woman’s egg in a laboratory. The researchers that women who could not have children were four times likelier than mothers to die early. Some doctors have said the report might childless women to about early. The truth is there is a very small risk of an early death. Just 316 women died during the 11-year study. Very few of those earlier than average.
