I am a 32 year old woman who is new to this forum and I joined because my boyfriend (almost fiance) told me recently that he has had Varicocele, a common cause for infertility. He was told by his doctor when he was 16 that he may not be able to have children. My boyfriend was really sweet when he told me and he said he knew that it might be a deal breaker for me but I just held my breath and told him that we would get through this.
It’s not anything he has ever shared with anyone but me because we want to get married and due to our faith, we are not going to have sex until marriage. I have never wanted to adopt but I guess I need to be open about this as an option. Should I ask him to get checked out again, he said he was willing to get information on it for me. I want him to know my love and acceptance of him but this is a really big blow. Any information or good stories about having children despite this condition would be most welcome! This is the first time I have mentioned this to anyone because it’s so personal and painful for him but I feel like I’m gonna burst if I don’t get some support or help to walk through this somehow!! HELP!! Thanks!
