My husband and I have been "trying" for 2 years now and have still not conceived. There are a few factors which may be hindering our efforts, but one is particularly concerning to me. My husband is a healthy 31 year old, and yet, he has very little ejaculate. It has been this way for at least the last two years, and I am wondering what might be the cause of this. He doesn't take any medication, and though he does drink alcohol frequently, it is not every day. Please help!View Thread
Thank you, Byroney, for your reply. I know you are right in that we need to see a doctor. We have both known this for some time, and yet, for one reason or another, we have put it off. On my part, I think it might be fear of discovering that we cannot conceive.
I do have a question, though. We live somewhere that good medical care is not found easily. Do we need to seek out a reproductive specialist, or would it be possible to go through an OB-GYN?
Congratulations! And thank you for sharing your story. We are 2 years TTC, and as my 35th birthday approaches, I am feeling less and less hopeful. However, I do have a friend who just turned 35 and just had her first baby after 4 years of trying also. So, I am very thankful to you both for giving me some hope. Best wishes for a healthy pregnancy!View Thread
