Just a blog about the process leading up to and including In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) from the viewpoint of the male partner. This is a candid discussion involving mature subjects. Sometimes I will describe events in a way that may make you feel uncomfortable. This is not for the sake of being gratuitous, but to illustrate my own discomfort in a particular situation. Whatever discomfort you have reading an event I describe is only a fraction of the discomfort I felt living the event.
Also this blog is in no way a means to degrade any of the doctors or nurses. Everyone we have had to deal with has been fantastic. But there are aspects of the process from the male perspective that seem like an afterthought. Perhaps if I wasn’t the cause for needing IVF, I might not be as sensitive to these afterthoughts. I’m just documenting my observations and I mean no disrespect to anyone.

Oh wait…you wanted to know about us didn’t you. The wife and I are in our mid thirties and have been married for 2 years with no kids from any previous relationships. We both want a family just as many of you reading this page do. We currently reside on the east coast in central Florida. For more information check out my first post.
