I know that ladies that are overweight may find it difficult to concieve, but could the male being overweight cause fertility problems too? My partner is a big man, about 22 stone, though he is very tall and broad shouldered. I do worry so much that his weight might be what is stopping us from concieving. Its very difficult to talk to him about it as I think he would be somewhat offended, and the pressure on him would be catastrophic! Has anyone else shared a similar experience or do you have any advice? Of course I am encouraging him to lose weight for his own sake anyway, but does anyone know whether this can really affect our ability to have children?
