    Hi guys

    Thought it was about time I stopped lurking about and introduced myself. Not sure I belong in here (or anywhere) as I haven't seen anyone with the same problems as myself and DH.

    Basically we have been TTC for over three years but DH has problems ejeculating. Maybe only three or four times a year (with me, alone he is fine) which obviously is a big problem. It is psycological problem rather than a physical blockage and we are seeing a therapist but it is such a long and slow process.

    Feel like I am going to go mad if one more relative, friend or neighbour announces a pregnancy!! So can I join for the occassional rant and support from people who understand the heartbreak every month when AF arrives?

    WELCOME!! You have had such a long journey. I know how frustrating it can be when DH has problems. My DH doesn't have ejaculation problem but a lot of times it is hard for him to get excited because of the stress of TTC (psychological). His urologist actually gives him Levitra for him to take for emergency situations (O time) when he can't get excited. Anyway, I know your situation is different and just wanted to give you big :hug:. You will find much support and advice here and now you have a place to VENT!!! Good luck! I hope your TTC journey is over soon.

    :hugs:--Lesley

    Hi

    Sorry for the difficulties you are having. I hope the counselling works for you both, but if not have you looked into Assisted Conception??

    Good luck hunni

    Hi, I just had to write you and tell you that I have had some experience with this sort of thing. The man I dated before my DH had the exact same problem. I was with him (off and on) for six years and he almost never EJ'd with me, he had no problem with out me. It wasn't medical either, but he never sought help. I know how frustrating this problem is. I always felt like it was my fault. I now understand that it wasn't but it was very difficult to go through. I hope this isn't TMI, but I heard on a medically related radio show, that a couple with this problem just let the husband get to the EJ point by himself then quickly switched position to ummm, well the obvious "get PG " position.
    Does my rambling make any sense?
    Anyway, Good luck to you!
