My work in this series comes from the study of the use of ovulation and pregnancy tests, also known as “sticks and jars”.  As a man trying to come to grips with issues of infertility, I began the process of understanding through the study of the ovulation and pregnancy tests.  These objects are foreign to men.  I have studied the process of how these objects are used during the women’s menstrual cycle. For a year, my wife went through the process of using these objects to test for her peck ovulation and then to find out if we were pregnant that month. This process was a vicious cycle that lasted weeks of each month for a year.
