Hello,
sometimes it’s hard for us to admit that we might be the one failing our spouses. I myself gave my wife a hard time when we were trying to conceive. When she wanted us to visit the clinic for tests i was so scared that it will mean I am half of a man. but she’s really been my rock, she introduced me to such forums and i got to see how much women go through when ttc. i knew i had to man up and go have the tests. the results were not that much encouraging but at least i know now and we are working on it.

hey ddermody, I really appreciate the fact that you are acknowledging what women go through when ttc. And it's really great to see that you have the support of your wife. That is just what you need in such times. Keep supporting each other and your journey will be a smooth one.

yeah the only way to get through this is each other and of course help from above to keep the faith. for those who haven't been through this do not know how how hard the journey can get.

Though I am easily upset on hearing or seeing a man giving hard time to his wife when she is going through such a tough phase, I am glad on reading this post. Atleast, you decided to man up and go through the tests and are ready to work on it after knowing the results.

Why do men think that they would be half a man if there's a problem with them? Why does it have to be about your manhood when a woman is struggling to be a mother and is ready to try everything she can?

Well, atleast now you are supporting her. It's a positive sign and thank you. It really made my day to see someone actually manning up to accept that he did give his wife a hard time. Not many do this. I hope you understand the pains a woman goes through while ttc and I am glad for you and your wife, that you have each other through whatever comes your way.

I am not blaming anyone here. It's just that I have come across many such cases, where the man just doesn't want to go to the consultant and it is always about his manhood. I am just trying to understand where does this train thought come from in men.

Yes, even I am interested in hearing from you. What have you been advised by your specialist. Have you been to a fertility specialist?

Hello brother. I hope you are having a fantastic day.. May god bless you and your wife. She seems to be very caring of you.

I get what you mean. Everybody is afraid at first. Being half a man is a great way to explain it. It is the most accurate way to explain it I think. I know many infertile males. Most of them I have met on the clinic that I went to do my IVF. All of them had the same words... I feel half a man they said. BUt don;t worry too much! There isn't a single man who is more man to her than you! I am sure she loves you and you should do the same.

Cheers to you!
