My Fiance and I have been trying to conceive for about 2 1/2 years now. Shes been to the doctor and nothing appears to be wrong. I dont have insurance so we cant afford for me to go so I have a few questions. I have something on my penis that looks like a swollen vein. Its blue and has been there probably close to three years. What do I do to get rid of this. Is it normal? Does this prevent people from being about to have children?

What you are describing is nothing that would influence fertility. It is likely exactly what you describe, a vein, and with age it has become more visibly prominent, which is not a problem. You cannot "get rid" of it. It's relatively normal, even if it was less prominent before.

Unfortunately without seeing a urologist and having a semen analysis (probably cost about $200 for the visit and $100 for the test), there is no way you're going to know if it is a male fertility issue. 40% of the time infertility is a female issue, 40% of the time it is a male issue, and 20% of the time it is BOTH.

Your question should be posted in an infertility forum, not in a urology forum. Until it has been determined by a doctor to be a male infertility issue, there's nothing a urology forum can do to provide suggestions.

An unsolicited opinion, firm up your relationship before you start having children. Your child will benefit legally and financially from having married parents.
