: Is there anyone with information about infertilty? My husband and I had a child a year after he came home but now he can not? is there anyone with this problem need some info pleeeeease
My husband and I also have unexplained infertility. My husband was a tanker in the gulf. We have had 5 miscarraiges in the last 6 years. We have had semen analysis that show 76% of his sperm are severely amorphous. But getting pregnant is not our problem, we have trouble staying pregnant. The doctors told use that there is something wrong with the babies and they die before 3mos. We are now having chromosome testing done. My test have come back normal for basic chromosome testing but his is still pending at this time. I don't know what to really ask for or what to look for.....I am not sure the doctors do either. My husband has some GW symptoms..short term memory loss(BAD), his leg twitches(restless leg syndrome maybe), wt loss, severe acne on his back-chest-arms-neck-face-upper legs(the acne is small in size but large in numbers and it is deep in his skin with hard skinshells covering it).He went to the dr. in Germany after he returned from the gulf and was told he had prostatitis from ph imbalance due to climate changes. He has also seen a urologist here for prostatitis once. He has taken lots of oral medication and topical medication for the acne...nothing touches it. We are still hoping to find answers to his symptoms. If anyone has any thoughts on this please e-mail us @ firstname.lastname@example.org Thank you!
