This whole infertility thing has been an interesting ride lately. I am currently in my first medicated cycle and that’s been interesting as well. I was weary about taking medications — hormones have never been a good thing for my body. We were warned about the side effects that I might experience. My doctor told me that they weren’t exactly a picnic. After long conversations with our doctor, my husband and I decided to go ahead with it. The warnings were right — the side effects are not exactly what I would call fun.
But the warning helped me prepare for it as best as I could. At least I knew what to expect. What I was not prepared for though, was how my medication gave my husband some side effects too. Weird, right?
You won’t find these side effects in any medical journal since he’s not the one taking the medication. His side effects are real though and he’s been living with them for the past month. Don’t feel too bad for him though, it’s worse for me.

My husband has been wonderfully supportive during our this whole pregnancy ordeal. We believe that humor and the ability to laugh and smile at even the most stressful situations will help get us through it.
