Hi! I am new on this forum. Me and my husband are trying to conceive for more then two years. Recently I went to the doctor for deatail checkup and tests. My doctor is sure that it is everything OK with me. I don't know what to think. Probably it's problem in my husband. I must convince him to go to the doctor. Can you tell is there some symptoms that man is infertile?

Hi Melly. Welcome to the forum. Hope you will find the answer you need. I will try to help you. Among infertile men there are often no typical infertility symptoms and most men are not aware that they are infertile until a man tries to have a baby. Male infertility symptoms depend on what is causing the infertility and include. Sexual desire issues, unusual hair growth, testicle issues such as pain, swelling, increase or decrease in testicle size, problems with erections and ejaculation. Men are proud and often they will not admit that the problem is with them. Be persistent and convice your husband to go to the doctor.

I agree that men are difficult in that case. No, there is no specific symptom that can show if man is infertile. Tests are the ony way to found out what is going on. Hope everything will be OK with you. I wish your wish to have a baby will come true.

I agree, men are difficult to convince. I am working on that. I believe he will go to the doctor soon because he want to have a baby like I do. Thank you for answers and support.

Welcome to the forum! Is it that you never got a BFP all the while or it just doesn't go full way? If it is the later you need not worry much. However, if otherwise and Dr has already rules out any infertility issues in you after the standard diagnosis, chances are that your DH has some issues. Except for failure in ejaculation (which I believe is not the case or you'd have known) there's no other visible symptoms to male infertility. He is supposed to have a sperm analysis - checking the morphology, count and mobility of the sperms. All three can be treated or have alternatives like IUI or ICSI. Hope this information be of some help, though it's up to you how you'd convince him to go forth with the checkup and there's nothing I or anyone else can suggest in that. Men take their fertility way more seriously that women and it's a part of their huge male ego... be sure to play it safe when nudging him for sperm analysis. Good Luck!

Hey there! Basically, when a man is infertile, many things change. First of all the hair growth is changed, He will try to avoid sex as much as he can, his sexual drive decreases. He will feel pain in his testicles or his testicles will swell. He will also face problems during his ejaculations and erections. Convince him to visit a doctor asap.
