Bit of background .

I'm 28 (today) OH is 30 this year . Stopped using contraception in march 2011 . Officially trying for past year . We go to different GP practices.
I have a daughter aged 8 from a previous relationship . OH has a daughter aged 6 from a previous relationship.

So my GP has referred me for investigations and has told me to tell OH to go to his GP to ask for semen analysis .

OH went to his GP today and said no- because he has a previous child so obviously his sperm is ok so it must be me with the problem! ( this are his GP's exact words!!)

I am fuming- that is for one sexist and for two factually incorrect! Just because he has a 6 year old it doesn't prove there is nothing wrong with his sperm now!!

I have an appointment with my GP tomorrow to get a letter for OH's GP . I'm just really annoyed with this - we cannot get sperm analysis without a referral from his GP and I can't have further testing done until the results of the semen analysis are back!

Anyone else had problems with GP like this before?

We have a further appointment with OH's GP on Friday which I am going with him to - just let him be sexist then!!
