You will hear this often when you are going through infertility treatments. Blood is taken A LOT.
If you are terrified of needles, you will learn quickly not to be. Needles are an everyday scene when it comes to infertility treatments.
Today, I was giving blood for Coculture treatment. This required more blood than on a normal visit. Four big tubes worth to be exact.
Here is the behind the scenes of what it really looks like. (This is nothing terrible to view, it’s the real view of what women/men go through every day, but if you do not like the sight of needles/blood you might not want to view the video* )
*video will be up tonight.
That IS a lot of blood …
I think it’s time for me to go drink and eat something before I pass out!
