One IVF conception to go, please

Ann Althouse draws my attention to this British article on women who are jumping on the IVF bandwagon too early. One cause, say clinic officials, is a busy lifestyle:
About 10 per cent of people I see don't have time to have sex. It's usually when you have two professionals who are based in the city and are very busy.
Conservatives might be appalled by the continuing cultural gap between sex and reproduction, but I'm appalled by the prospect of someone who is too busy to have sex electing to take on the far vaster burden of caring for a child. Althouse thinks money is the real reason, but that doesn't sound right unless all of these women are already in their mid 30s.
