Happy 35th Birthday! You Now Qualify for Fertility Testing

Up until yesterday, you were just trying to get pregnant. It hadn’t quite been a year yet so basically, NBD. But not today. Today is your special day!

It is absolutely imperative that you get fertility testing! I don’t know how I can express how dire your circumstances are now that you have crossed the invisible line from 34-year-old who has been TTC for longer than she had hoped to a 35-year-old TTC for way too long.

It’s been over 6 months! Why didn’t you get tested sooner?! You should have brought this up to your doctor.

Relax, they would have hit you with an astronomical bill because yesterday you were under 35 and had been trying for less than a year. So why all the fuss?

Today is different. You are geriatric. Your ovaries have literally shriveled up and now you are paying for it. Metaphorically of course, because on this glorious day, you qualify for fertility testing and your insurance will foot the bill because it is dire. Your eggs are dropping like flies and you don’t seem to be understanding the gravity of this situation!

But, you’re young. You have best quality eggs. Don’t worry so much. Everything will be ok. So many people have babies after only 132 fertility treatment cycles. That could be you! And if you spend all your money on IVF, it’s ok. You now live at your doctor’s office anyway. No worries, birthday girl. You got this!

And it doesn’t even matter if you spend all your money on IVF since you now live at your doctor’s office. No worries, birthday girl. You got this!
