We are infertile. The bear got us.
Unless Husby’s current (6 months) treatment performs absolute miracles and raises our chances from nothing to infinitesimal, the clinic won’t even offer us fertility treatment, there being no point in wasting the money and time.
This six month period will now be used to sign up for and start receiving infertility counseling. A requirement for me (certainly at the moment) and for any council or other body with whom we may wish to pursue the adoption process; their standard practice for potential adopters who have discovered they are infertile.
In the meantime, we’re open to miracles but are no longer anticipating they might be a possibility. We know where we stand.
