We are using a somewhat new strategy that Dr. Agarwal hopes will improve my egg quality—a problem that, until now, has been described to us as unfixable. In this protocol, I take human growth hormone, which isn’t approved by the FDA for fertility use (in other words, more expensive), and testosterone in addition to the cocktail of other hormones and fertility medicines normally associated with IVF.

The residue left by on my legs by the testosterone patches won’t come off with water, soap, or even rubbing alcohol. I’m glad it’s not swimsuit season.
