Move over meat loaf and leftover casserole and make room for your fertility medication!

Hungry? Should you have a piece of fruit, some cheese or a gulp of Puregon? During future dinner parties, you might not want guests going through your refrigerator because that isn’t sparkling water! That’s your fertility meds! Your doctor might even tell you to keep the drugs in a cooler place so it doesn’t freeze including your vegetable crisper or beside your eggs and butter. Hmmm… What should I have for breakfast today? Maybe some scrambled eggs with my drugs…

Your fridge becomes your instant infertility reminder. You open up that fridge in the morning and notice your meds before grabbing that container of milk. You fridge automatically screams at you: NOT PREGNANT! NOT PREGNANT! It is the only appliance in your house that can make you feel as depressed as the arrival of Auntie Flow. Shut up fridge!

Now, if you’re toaster oven or microwave starts reminding you of infertility, you might want to check with your fertility (or mental health) specialist.

    Awesome. I just opened my fridge to make lunch and came face to face with my Novarel. :)

    I agree! When we decided to quit IVF and move on to surrogacy and DE, I took all those viles that had collected, etc. to the pharmacy to be "handled properly". I had gotten so used to them being in the fridge until one day I need space and ¡voila! got rid of those meds.

    LOL, agreed.

    Every time I open my fridge I am reminded of my failed injectable cycle- from over 4 months ago. Talk about hanging onto leftovers…

    That's hilarious. My husband makes jokes about me "seasoning" his meals with Ovidrel because of the drugs in our fridge!
