Octomom Now Claims She Was Drugged When Consent Was Given For IVF

Hasn’t her 15 minutes of notoriety expired yet?

Octuplets mom Nadya Suleman told celebrity doctor Drew Pinksy in an interview that she was drugged when she signed a consent form giving her fertility doctor permission to transfer 12 embryos. “He wrote something, he gave it to me to sign,” Suleman said during the HLN interview Thursday night. “I signed it, and I didn’t read it.” She said she was on a “cocktail of drugs,” including Valium for treatment of health problems.

The California Medical Board on July 1 revoked the medical license of Beverly Hills fertility doctor Michael Kamrava. The panel ruled that Kamrava “did not exercise sound judgment” in the transfer of 12 embryos to Suleman. Kamrava was accused by the attorney general’s office of being grossly negligent in his treatment of Suleman and two other female patients: a 48-year-old who suffered complications after she became pregnant with quadruplets and a 42-year-old diagnosed with advanced ovarian cancer after receiving fertility treatments.
