Yes. Not a good idea: We can't make your husband do a test he doesn't want to but it's a bad idea to 'skip' testing for him.

It could be the only problem or occur along with problems on the woman's side. A semen analysis is a good test to do early on. Most clinics can let him collect at home. ...Read more
