You Know You’re Infertile When…

Funny moments with Infertility

OK folks, let’s lighten things up a bit and play the “You Know You Are Infertile When_____” game.

You Know You’re Infertile When…

• You read a post on Facebook about someone getting nine eggs and you assume it’s IVF related, then you realize it was from a friend who has chickens.
• Someone tells you they’re pregnant and you ask what they did. (Not sure who was the most embarrassed-me or them.)
• When your daughter greets your husband at the door with “daddy is your sperm okay today”. (They were in the midst of fertility treatment and their 6 year old daughter asked the mom why she kept going to the doctor. The mom told her that mommy and daddy wanted another baby, but sometimes there are problems with the sperm or eggs. They had already introduced the basic biology of reproduction. That night her daughter greeted her husband that night with this question.)

OK, your turn, what are your funny, embarrassing, or unforgettable infertility moments.

    One of the stupidest experiences I’ve had while struggling w/infertility was at the Dept. of Social Services. After giving the required blood necessary for HIV/AIDS testing before adopting from Vietnam, my husband and I were chatted to about “safe sex” practices. As we rose to leave, with me having had just about all I could take for one day, our “counselor” reached into a glass jar and handed me a CONDOM stating, “Our parting gift to you!” A little sensitivity would have been nice. The icing on the cake was when we entered the parking lot on a baking hot June afternoon and found a baby and toddler left ALONE in a hot car! So, it’s “You know when you’re infertile when strangers hand you condoms and you find abandoned little ones in parked cars.” — Just to infuriate you in your situation a little more!
