Anything You Say….

Discussing fertility or IVF in Hebrew is like playing with fire.

Here’s why:

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.

One thought on “Anything You Say….

  1. 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!!”.
