When I pictured my life I never thought my DH and I would have to go through this. But I am sure no one does! My DH has taken it especially hard. He keeps saying it is all his fault. I'm not sure how to comfort except that I keep telling him this is our problem and we are in it together. He says that I will never understand and he's right I won't. Even before we had initial testing done I felt like something was off and I would try to change our diet or try different things to help us. At each suggestion he would question it and would be against it. Does anyone else have this problem? I think he thought I was just getting crazy ideas off the internet to try, and maybe I was but just because its on the internet doesn't mean it doesn't work right? Even when I told him that he should try taking more Zinc, L-Carnitine (sp), Selenium, he questioned that too saying that he was already taking it in his multivitamin. I guess we just have two different views, he is cynical about advice unless it comes from a doctor and I want to try anything because what do we have to lose? Its getting better, now that we are going to see an RE at Wilford Hall, I think he is more open to trying different things, like Fertilaid. I'm not sure if it will work, but it can't hurt right? I suggested the other day that he should stop drinking diet drinks and any drink with splenda, sucralose, sacchrin (sp), etc because I read that it can affect sperm production, but he didn't really say whether he believed it or not and said we should wait and talk to the RE about it and see what he says... Maybe I just need to gather more evidence, put it into a report and present it to him so he can see that its just not a crazy internet search! Not like my past ones anyway!
