Infaithlity infertelity ??

For half of last year I was undergoing IVF treatment. I have been through this before, and I know the indignities one suffers. Including prodding probing and testing for both parties (but chiefly the woman) Often you are asked how often you have sex, or even if you are having sex successfully :) as part of the early fertility work-up. And to maintain sperm count and quality you are advised to have sex "every other day"

Had a funny thought today... If I had known what was really going on with Neil, when the Dr asked these questions I could've answered "Oh yes doc, my partner has no problem ejaculating - every other day for all I know - just not with me" What a truly insensitive man he is to let me go through that and not be 100% on board with me.

My friend went through years of infertility treatments, which finally resulted in a son. When it came time to think about the second child, they decided to adopt rather than have her go through these indignities again.

I feel for you.

Yes, I hear you. It's so tough wrapping your mind around unfaithfulness, especially if you've been sincere and faithful to begin with. A friend went through infertility treatments. It was excruciating and humiliating. And it took her ten years to conceive.

As for Neil. How could he?
