After five years of trying to have a baby, my wife's OB/GYN has sent us to a "reproductive endocrynologist"...(fancy name for fertility specialist.) We had our first appointment and a plan is in place. She will have some tests and then we go back when she's at her peak ovulation. Early in the morning AT THEIR OFFICE I will have to provide a "specimen", have the sperm "washed" (separated) and then inserted into my wife. Sorry...get to the point. For some reason, I'm nervous about "rubbing one off" in the doctor's office. Don't know if it's because I know that several people will know what I'm doing and will be waiting for me to "produce" something for them to use or what. We live an hour away from this hospital...so no such luck doing it at home and taking it with me. Anyone else out there go through the same thing with the same anxietites???
