Your husband or partner would rather watch an episode of than discuss his fertility issues with his pals.
You have a great network of close friends and family you can lean on but your husband refuses to talk to anyone about his desire to have a child. It’s sad really. When you come home from a disappointing fertility procedure, you cry to your friends while your hubby turns on the television. Your hubby would never consider opening a few beers and talking about his low sperm count to a group of guys.
Imagine if he could actually be open about it during guys night out?
Your Husband: “We just got back from a fertility appointment and it turns out she can’t ovulate. I’m so disappointed because her last period was regular”
Guy Friend 1: “I have a low sperm count and I’ve tried everything.”
Guy Friend 2: “I hear you buddy. I thought my wife was pregnant this month because I had the most wonderful dream about our baby.”
Guy Friend 3: “Did you try having intercourse during her most fertile cycle?”
Strangely, the topic of fertility never comes up during guys night out. They will spend their evening drinking beers, watching sports and perhaps uttering the words ‘vaginal fluid’ or ’swollen breasts’ but in a completely different context.
