I recently came across a woman on a message board whose husband is dealing with infertility. Like anyone dealing with infertility he has not dealt with it well. She has had a hard time connecting with him, which is natural given the circumstances. Just as men are going to have a hard time understanding what their infertile wives are going through, it’s going to be the same situation when roles are reversed. So here is a some advice for women who have husbands who are infertile.
Are you and your partner trying for a baby? If you have immersed yourself into the world of “TTC”, you will no doubt have noticed that most articles and books are directed at women and specifically related to the female body. Yet, the male role in conception is clearly equally important, and while folic acid and a health diet give the future mom and her baby the best start in pregnancy, her partner’s dietary habits have a direct impact on his sperm and fertility, and thus the couple’s chances of conceiving.
