Apparently, in our family, that designation goes to me alone.
Hmmm, it's interesting. I always considered that WE were infertile. Even after all of the testing was completed WE were labeled with unexplained infertility, as both of our test results came back within normal parameters. I even did IVF to prove that my eggs aren't rotten.
As part of our adoption homestudy we have to have some physician's statements filled out. One page lists all sorts of conditions that you need to indicate either a "yes" or a "no". One of those conditions is infertility. I answered yes on my paperwork. Yesterday Brian was at his physical with our primary care doctor. This doctor knows the reader's digest version of our struggles. He and Brian went over the checklist together and when they got to "infertility" Brian said no. The doctor questioned this and Brian told him that it was me, not him, that is infertile, as all of his numbers are good. So the "no" answer remained and they went on.
How do I know about this? Brian told me about it. (I bet he wishes now that he kept this tidbit to himself.) I take issue with this determination. I mean, my numbers are good too. Yet I get the label. And all of the fun that goes along with it. Granted, I am the one who actually received treatment for said condition, but I never thought that I bore the label by myself. I've spent the past almost two years thinking that WE had an infertility issue. Not that I did.
