His friends are your friends, too!
Many people are surprised that in 50% of infertile couples both he and she have a problem.
That's why Dr. Amos highly recommends that you and your partner see a doctor as soon as you decide to start a family. A preconception visit may help you find out if there are any problems and may help you get pregnant faster. But even if you're already a few cycles into the baby-making mode, being able to answer the following three questions will go a long way to establishing your chances of a successful conception:
- How are his sperm?
- Am I ovulating?
- Are my fallopian tubes open?
What he can do right now!
A sperm analysis or semen analysis can answer the sperm question painlessly and without any needles or drugs. And there are many ways to improve your sperm count if it's abnormal.
A sperm analysis checks for:
- How the semen thickens into a solid and turns to liquid
- Fluid thickness, acidity, and sugar content
- Resistance to flow (viscosity)
- Movement of the sperm (motility)
- Number and structure of the sperm
- Volume of semen
Remember guys, letting your partner subject herself to batteries of invasive tests and drug regimens without having yourself evaluated just isn't fair.
