My wife and I are having trouble getting pregnant. What are the odds that I’m the problem?
It’s possible. In any instance of infertility, 40 percent of the time the man is responsible and 40 percent of the time it’s the woman; the other 20 percent have unknown causes. See a doctor and get a semen analysis – it’s simple, and it’ll tell you whether you’ve got a normal sperm count and the sperm are healthy. If the results aren’t what you hope, take it from there. One step at a time.
