Unprotected sex for years, never gotten anyone pregnant.

I'm a 29 year old male. I've been in many healthy long term(2-4 years) relationships since the time i was 14 and in all of them, we have had unprotected sex. In the beginning we use condoms and/or birth control and usually one of us will get sick of using them, and we will just have unprotected sex for the remainder of our relationship. I have gotten very used to pulling out before ejaculation.

I have never gotten anyone pregnant and I'm wondering if i should be worried about this. Currently i'm not considering family planning, yet, but i want to have the ability to be honest and forthcoming with my current partner. If i am unable to have children, i want to know and i want to be open with her and let her know.

It makes me very uncomfortable to possibly be in a situation where i would have to explain to someone that loves me, that i am unable to give them a child. This is a situation i wouldn't ever want to have to put someone into, having to decide between the prospect of having children and deciding to stay with me out of pure and honest love.

is this something i should be considering? Should i be worried, and if i should be tested, how do i go about it, and what am i asking for?

Talk to your primary care doctor about ordering a semen analysis for you. If you have insurance you can all them for a testing laboratory that accepts your insurance. Getting the analysis is the quickest and easiest way to find out if you have fertility. To hard to just guess if you are fertile or not by pervious activities since many factors can play into the equation.

Fertility can be a huge stress on couples but you would have options to explore if you do have male factor infertility.
