Discussing fertility or IVF in Hebrew is like playing with fire.
Hebrew word for ova (plural of ovum)= ביציות beitziot
Hebrew word for both eggs (gobble gobble) and testicles= ביצים beitzim
And so as I discussed IVF with a group of women this evening I mentioned that “In my last round of IVF they retrieved 6 testicles.”
So my list of embarrassing moments is just that much longer.
Reminds me of the time i had horrible cramps and I wanted to say “Can someone just remove my ovaries!!” but instead I said “Can someone just remove my testicles!!”.
