Fertility for men?

Okay so I am starting to think maybe something is wrong being that DH and I have been trying to concieve for 13 months. I know there is a Fertility test for women via FRER. I took it and it says my stuff is normal so I tried talking to DH about getting tested, he says no because 1. he says hes embarassed. 2. he doesnt want to know that he cant give me a baby and 3. he says if we cant do it naturally its not meant to happen. ( DS is not biologically Dh's although you never would have known if I didnt say something.)

Well sorry DH that is unacceptable to me! I want a baby! If I have to duck tape you to the bed, give your spermies a sex pep talk and jump on thats what we are going to do!! ( sorry maybe tmi lol ) But I mean isnt there something that men can take at home to tell if they are fertile? it only seems fair, we have all this stuff, to see if were fertile, ovulating, pregnant and i think there is even something to see about metopause.

Any one know? and is there a vitiamn he might beable to take to help increase fertility?

Thanks so much !!!

I am with your husband on this one.  If it isn't meant to be then it won't happen and nothing you do will make it happen.  But to answer your question: http://www.amazon.com/Micra-Sperm-Test-Count-Motility/dp/B000SLM504

I would really have him get a test done by his doctor.  It's really not that big of deal.  My DH has to have a second one done next week.  They run a bunch of different tests on it....Morphology, Motility, PH, Volume....etc.  The first one, he got to do it at home, but it came back abnormal, so he is going to a specialist and he has to do it there.  He seems to be more comfortable now with the whole process, plus he knows what I've had to go through with the blood tests and now I have to have a HSG done Friday.  Good luck and I hope you DH decides to have it done.

I have this same exact problem. I thought about seeing if he would do one at home. But he goes to his urologist on the 16th so he said he promises that he would ask about it then. He said he doesnt care what pain or what he has to do so we can have a baby. He knows that I am willing to put my body thru hell and back to be able to have a baby. So he will do the same. The problem he has(probably TMI) but he doesnt masterbate and never really did when he was growing up either, so it takes him like an hr to get off doing that. So we will see what happens. But I am hoping and praying that he does this for us.

I found this Fertilaid stuff that got a lot of great reviews.  We bought the ones for him and me both to take.  The website ships free and super fast.  Check it out here: http://www.early-pregnancy-tests.com/feformenwil.html
