Q: Can my husband masturbate while we TTC?

A: There is nothing wrong with his masturbating two to three times a day when you are not trying to get pregnant. But your husband's daily masturbation could be the reason for your difficulties getting pregnant. Each ejaculation reduces the sperm count, and new sperm need to be produced after each ejaculation. There are usually enough sperm produced if he ejaculates about once a day, though for some men even that may be too much. But the sperm count can probably be significantly reduced when he ejaculates two to three times each day. The first step in finding out the cause of your difficulty getting pregnant would be to check the ejaculate and do a sperm count. If his sperm count is low, you may want to talk to your husband about his habit and discuss whether it's possible for him to masturbate less. At least until you are pregnant.
