He laughed and said at least I could have my few minutes of pleasure from the anesthesia during the egg retrieval.
"But I'm asleep during the egg retrieval! It's not pleasurable at all!" I told him earnestly.
Well, come to find out, "you may be more awake than you think."
The RE went on to tell me about one patient who throughout the retrieval and following kept saying she should have stayed with her ex-boyfriend, who at least had good sperm (apparently her husband had male factor issues). The RE said they kept her in recovery, away from her loving and unsuspecting husband, until she was wide awake and in control of her faculties.
Later, the RE told her what she had been saying, and she said, "I hated that SOB - I'd never want to be back with him! My husband didn't hear me, did he?" She was assured, that no, her husband had not heard her.
I try to remind myself that they've seen it all. Whatever shocking behavior I could come up with must be boring to them. Of course, when I said this to the RE, he smiled, and said, "You'd be surprised."
Egads! Who knows what I've been saying during these multiple retrievals!
Figures that I'd be amnestic for the one bit of euphoria during this crappy process.
Thoughts on your potential behavioral pitfalls while disinhibited on meds? Pray tell, any actual stories?
