Like Alicia in “Master of None,” I really had no idea what the process would look like, or whether I could handle it.
(The average cost in the United States, including medication, is about $25,000.)
That idea was quickly crushed as I learned that single women and lesbian couples are banned from receiving I.V.F.
Some dear friends, a married couple, had invited me to stay with them while I went through the procedures, which would be much less expensive than in the United States.
I started the paperwork, made initial appointments at a clinic, and started reviewing sperm banks in northern Europe.
