Last week I asked if anybody wanted to write a guest blog for me., surrounding infertility, IVF or anything relevant to that subject, I was really happy to have such an amazing response and I am pleased to introduce a blog post 'The two week wait'.
All of the written text that is expressed on this post are the Dr's own words. His word are not my opinion and are not related to me in any way. The content has not been changed or edited by myself or any other person that I know or have been in contact with..
The unnamed Dr would prefer to remain anonymous for personal reasons,, You can follow him on Twitter: @ukinfertility.
37, M, British Asian, GP, engaged to E, azoospermic, using donor sperming response and chose
My fiancée, E and I are in the midst of the 2WW, which all infertile couples will be aware of but few outside of the infertility community will have any clue about.
As a GP, the 2WW is very familiar, but for a different reason. In the NHS, a person who is referred via 2WW or Fast Track is someone whom a doctor suspects may have cancer. The 2WW for infertile couples whilst not life threatening can be almost
as stressful as a cancer referral.
The 2WW means E has a rest from the daily injections but instead she has to insert a Progesterone pessary (Cyclogest) every 12 hrs for the 2WW period.
Other than a few twinges, discomfort and post procedure spotting, E and I are in good spirits. Life, work and the good weather at the moment is a good distraction.
I imagine the donor sperm team are on their epic journey from the lower womb to the Fallopian tube to meet the egg and then hopefully a miracle baby is created.
