This is my heart-felt story of too many emotionally jarring trials to conceive a normal embryo via in-vitro fertilization, at my ”seasoned” age of 42-43. The pain and despair were starting to brim inside me and, at the encouragement of a highly spiritual friend, I considered letting the gates open and describing how I felt, the ordeal we had been through and what I wish I knew before starting the process.<br /><br />It felt cathartic every time I sat down to write and bared a bit more of what I had gone through during the IVF journey.<br /><br />Having pored over numerous blogs addressing a particular issue at a time, that women during IVF cycles were anxious to find out more about, I thought that I should send out my pearls of wisdom and experience, in a coherent way, about the myriad aspects and burning questions that couples worry about while they are going through the harrowing process of in-vitro fertilization. <br />The issues and observations from my painful IVF experience were so many, and their impact on a woman’s life so vast, that I thought I should put them down in a book.<br /><br />The book describes chronologically the emotional rollercoasters, all the tests and special measures we took as a couple before and during each of my eight consecutive in-vitro cycles (and nine altogether, considering an earlier cycle I had done when I was forty). I include, for ease of reference, concise medical descriptions of the relevant procedures we were concerned with during the IVF journey – both on the male and the female side, and on an embryo level.<br /><br />I hope this book will be useful to the women and couples who have done, are doing or might be doing in-vitro; and to the women who are tempted to delay procreation for so long that they might expose themselves to the precarious process of IVF.<br />My message to you is: You are not alone! Do not succumb to despair! Keep hoping, keep trying, and keep going until you have figured it out!<br />

<div><b >A joyful and indispensable guide filled with astonishing, important, and little-known information about the vagina that will equip a new generation to make informed choices about their sexual health and happiness.</b></div> <i><div><i><br /></i></div>The Wonder Down Under</i> is a comprehensive guide to a miraculous and complex part of the body that too few of us (regardless of gender) are all that familiar with--the vagina. With wisdom, humor, and scientific aplomb, medical student Ellen Støkken Dahl and Dr. Nina Brochmann take readers on a fascinating journey of female sexual organs and sexual health--from the clitoris to contraception to cervical cancer.<br /><br />More than a user's manual, this book is the funny, frank tribute to the vagina that we have been waiting for. <i>The Wonder Down Under </i>is filled with astonishing, essential, and little-known information--relayed with both medical expertise and genuine empathy. Did you know, for instance, that female and male sex organs are merely variations on the same basic structure? Or that there's no such thing as a virginity test--because examining the hymen cannot meaningfully indicate whether or not someone's had sex?<br /><br />Brochmann and Dahl have written a tour-de-force about the biology, anatomy, and reality of the female body, examining the many ways in which widespread misinformation and silence about the vagina have been harmful to women over time. <i>The Wonder Down Under</i> makes crucial contributions to the discussion: the book was an instant bestseller that sold out in its native Norway in just three days. Since then it has been acquired by publishers in more than two dozen countries around the world.<br /><br /><i>The Wonder Down Under</i> is a joyful and indispensable book that will educate readers of all kinds and equip a new generation to make informed choices about their sexual well-being.<br />
