(mis)Adventures in Reproduction: Diagnosing Bad Luck

With each test, I grew more excited, sensing a discovery was just around the corner. "Today's test is going to show something! I just know it." I imagined sitting in the office, getting the results and exclaiming "Well that explains it! And you say all I have to do is take these magic pills and it will all be ok? Why didn't I do this sooner."

The follow-up appointment didn't exactly go like that. Instead, it went like this. Doctor: Well, I've reviewed the results of every test and everything is well within normal range. I have no explanation for your multiple losses other than to say it's simply bad luck.
