Michael Kamrava, the fertility doctor who twice implanted six embryos into octomom Nadya Suleman (two embryos reportedly split into twins), has been kicked out of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine. The society recommends no more than two embryos for women under 35, to reduce the risk of multiple births; Kamrava implants an average of 4.1 embryos into his under-35 patients. The expulsion is significant because some insurers will only cover procedures performed by ASRM members, USA Today reports. (More Michael Kamrava stories.)
