    My fiance and I have been TTC for awhile now but he thinks he may not have fertile sperm. He wont go to the doctor because he doesn't want to be disappointed. What can I do to help him?

    The best thing your fiancee can do is to go have a sperm analysis, you also need to be check i.e. you uterus, falopian tubes and so on. that way both of you will have a clear picture of what is going on. Infertility is very hard to go through. My husband and myself have gone through it. We had been trying to get pregnan for the last 6 years and nothing worked including the IUIs, infertility drugs, herbal drugs, and we were just heartbroken. But you see we knew what was going on becuase we both got tested so that we could know how to tackle the whole situation. Earlier this years, after 6 years of unsuccessful trials, we decided not to focus on the issue because we had had so many disappointments. But through God's grace, earlier this month we found that we are expecting (now 7 weeks). So I encourage both of you to go get checked. It does not hurt but it gives power to know what actions to get. Do not give up, it will happen but you must believe it.
