A little background…..My Darling Husband and I have been TTC since May last year. In November, I went to my OB and she did some blood work. My hormones all came back within normal ranges. I am in good health & have very regular cycles. She did a quick internal and said everything seemed “perfect” (sidenote – took all my strength not to sock her as I thought – nope, not perfect because I’m not preggers!). I know that we’re still within the typical “one year” that they give healthy couples.
My Darling Husband has not had a physical in at least 5 years. Over the years I’ve tried to get him into a routine but he really dislikes going to the doctor (I blame it on the fact that he didn’t go regularly as a kid). FINALLY, in November, after my OB appointment – he suggested that maybe he get “checked out”. He has a regular physical appointment scheduled in a couple weeks. I’d really like him to ask for the doctor to have him do a SA – but I don’t think he’ll come out and say it himself. I was thinking I could give Darling Husband a couple questions as a suggestion that he could bring up with the doctor at this appointment.
My thoughts were to ask the doctor about:
– Test Hormone levels
Anything else I should suggest he bring up? Anyone else been in this boat? I’m trying to do this in a way that doesn’t take away his manliness – but my hope is that the appointment will give us a chance to get some info. My Darling Husband doesn’t have any overt problems in the “bedroom” or health-wise (except he IS overweight which I have read can mess up hormone levels).
