Me and my soon to be husband have been trying to have a baby but his doctor told him that when he was born he had dead ball and im not too sure what this means but i know that he might not be able to have kids, and i have tried to talk to him about what if he cant but he dont want to hear it because he thinks that i am trying to fix him that he is broken but that is not true i love him and we are going to be married and i want to be able to have our own little family, i have thought about sperm banks but that is out of question because i want to have his kids not someone elses, i dont know what to do, is there meds that can help, and how do i get him to see that i am not trying to fix him, i dont think he is broken
Hi, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum!
The only way to be sure of your soon to be husband's condition is to go for a semen analysis. If one of the testes is working, then there is chance of conceiving. You can go for counseling or take help of a family friend you are both close to help him take the test. Hope this helps. Take care!
