this is your ovary

This is your ovary:

See how everything is plump, round and lovely?
Doesn't it look like it's fully of jolly, good natured eggs who would jump at the chance to slide down a fallopian tube into a nice warm uterus? Doesn't it look like they'd greet sperm with an enthusiastic "hidey ho! let's get together!!"

This is my ovary:

See the difference?
Doesn't it look sullen, petulant, uncooperative?
Doesn't it look like it's full of eggs that probably need a crutch/walker/wheelchair and a jolt of RedBull to even begin thinking of venturing towards a fallopian tube?
And if they happened to encounter the sperm, wouldn't the sperm just turn and swim the other way?
This is what I have to work with.

In the next few weeks I'll bombard these little suckers with estrogren, FSH and LH.
I will hope and pray that 4 or 5 of them will actually decide to take the bait.
