If pregnancy does not occur in any way, then it is necessary to be examined not only for a woman, but also for a man. For this, a spermogram is taken, which will help determine whether there are problems with fertility. However, men do not want to agree to such a procedure and often they have to be persuaded.
Why does your significant other not want this? First, a man may worry about the fact that it is he who is to blame for the absence of children. Secondly, there may be fears that it will not be possible to pass the analysis, or that friends will react in some wrong way to this fact.
A woman should remind a man that all possible problems with his health can be identified much easier than if it concerned the issue of female infertility. And the possibilities of treatment in this case are much wider. You should also explain that your future children mean a lot to you and that you are ready for anything to have them. Ask if a man, for his part, can also sacrifice something? As a rule, in this case, the future dad agrees and is ready to “show evidence” of his readiness for fatherhood.
The material for the spermogram is collected by masturbation, after which the sperm is examined under a microscope by the attending physician. Actually, it is the very process of collecting sperm that causes so much indignation in men. However, if you live near the clinic, you can also collect sperm at home. Although most medical institutions have appropriately equipped semen collection rooms, there are also erotic films and pictures of the corresponding content. In addition, the wife may also be present next to the husband.
If you can’t convince your spouse to visit the clinic and get tested, then you can use special condoms designed specifically for collecting sperm. They differ from the usual ones in that they completely lack silicone lubricants and flavors (the presence of such substances can significantly distort the results of the analysis).
Be that as it may, the examination of the spouse must certainly take place. Indeed, according to statistics, it is male problems that account for 40% of the total number of infertility cases. Agree, it is much better to know the reason for the absence of children in your couple than to live all your life with a diagnosis of “unexplained causes of infertility.” Moreover, fertility problems are correctable with appropriate treatment.
