Hello....I am new here today...from the badmotherclub...our forum is some of us have come over here......

.....I need some advice....ok I realise I have only been trying now for 2 proper cycles, but I ALWAYS fall in my second month of trying. I know I am older now, fatter too...and sometimes things dont happen right away for many reasons......but.....

About 5 years ago my dh had a very nasty motorbike accident. He fractured his pelvis....after the accident I went to see his bike, and the tank had a massive dent on it, which explained why his man things went black!

Could this have damaged him in some way?

Can men damage there tubes like we can?

He says its feels no different down there.

This is something I have always wondered about......

I think its possible but highly unlikely

I'd go to the gp and say you've been trying a year and ask for standard tests .. you'll get blood tests and he'll get a sperm test

Yes it is possible. I know someone who it happened to.

Luckily in his case, he and his wife had finished their family and he was due to go for the snip anyway.

Get him to get some checks done. The first test will be easy, a sperm count. He will only need to go further if that throws up bad results.

Hope it works out for you.

If it concerns you I would get him checked out at the GPs, I guess it could do some damage but there's no point worrying until he has been given an examination.
