How do I break it to him that he needs to get his sperm tested?
If you need him to get his sperm tested, the chances are you've been banging away for a few months without much result. It can be difficult to convey this to a guy. Two things I'd suggest:
Explain to him it will make the whole process a lot quicker potentially. You can identify any potential problems and that can save you sometimes a year or two. It gives you an understanding of where you stand.
I've been in the process -- several times. It can be a little daunting when you first go in there. But they provide you with plenty of good viewing material. The end of the day you just get to do what all blokes are very good at doing. A little tug and it's not that bad. So you can tell him he'll get to look at some great porn and he's really just got to masterbate.
He may be a little sensitive about the subject, but if you've been trying for a while you just want to make sure there are no problems and expedite the process. If there is a problem you can get onto it and you're not still trying in three years. Who knows what that will do to your relationship.
Hope that helps.
Sam and Tom,
Being Dad Team
Troy Jones: Troy's company produced the Being Dad series and he has traveled the globe interviewing hundreds of new dads and experts. As a result we like to think of him as a "well renowned global guru in all things Being Dad;" sounds impressive anyway. Troy has a beautiful daughter Matilda, who appears in the Being Dad series.
Sam Holt: Best known for coming up with a new idea every five minutes it's little wonder that Being Dad was, in fact, his idea. Fortunately, Being Dad was one of Sam's better ideas and with the help of Troy and Tom it has grown way beyond all of their expectations. Sam has a son, Hugo, who is too cute to be his.
Tom Hastwell: Lured out of the corporate world by Sam and Troy, Tom has been bitten by the business bug. Troy and Sam are eagerly awaiting news that Toms wife is pregnant so that they can attach a camera crew to him for nine months and actually put him to work. Tom is currently practicing for kids.
