What do you need to make a baby? A willing partner? A good sense of timing? Some wine maybe? A nice meal and some amorous music? Not always. There are times when all the romance (and luck) just simply will not do. In those times, what you need is a specimen pot, a heap of drugs, so many ultra-sound scans that your wife or partner begins to glow in the dark and a huge large amount of tea.
Providing a rare yet enlightening male perspective on the world of IVF, Test tubes and testosterone is one man’s experience of infertility and the IVF journey he embarked on with his wife in order to start a family. Told with humour, wit and insight, this book sheds light on issues that can be hard to discuss even with the closest of friends or relatives, making it a valuable book for anyone contemplating or going through IVF.
