Infertility with Humor

11 Mar

I recently read Good Eggs by Phoebe Potts and loved it!  The author is an artist who describes her journey through infertility using cartoons which are both touching and humorous.  Her graphic memoir captures the experience with a fresh new lens.  It gave me some laughs and also captured my feelings on the experience like a good friend.   In all she went through four years of fertility treatments with no happy ending, yet.  In all she has had 3 IUI’s, 4 IVFs, and “at least” five miscarriages.

Here are two of my favorite excerpts from the book:

The Waiting Room at the Fertility Clinic
