What would you do?

My husband needs to have a procedure that has a high chance of leaving him sterile. He has 3 children, we have 1 together but he wants at least one more - I am open to having another but would be ok if not. My question is, do we try now before the procedure although our finances could be stronger or risk the wait. Just curious what the consensuses is.

  • you could also check into having his semen preserved. I'm pretty sure they do that for guys as well.

    Its an option possibly, then you can wait and try to have a baby when you are ready, financially i mean.

    But im guessing the proceedure to preserve it is expensive as well, but probably worth checking into.
