Our first appointment with the fertility specialist

Our first appointment with the fertility specialists was comforting and a reality check in terms of the cost involved in IVF.


Going for a Mammogram…

Going for a mammogram seems like an awkward experience, especially if it's your first time. The staff however do this daily and are very professional. Remember ladies to do your self examinations at home, monthly!

Oh crap, I feel a lump!

It's Sunday evening and I am off to take a shower before going to bed. For some reason I touched my breasts. I must admit I don't do the once a month self inspection as all woman are supposed to to check for lumps in our breasts. But there it was in all it's glory.... Continue Reading →

Annual check-up (3 years in)

So it was time once again for my annual check-up. I've learnt that I am 'ok' going to these check-ups and that I don't need to be scared of the enodmetriosis returning. They do get easier with time.

Surgery #2 (Laparotomy)

Going back for my second surgery was slightly easier. I knew what the diagnosis were and what was coming.
