    DH was 37, non smoker doesn't drink. He's quite fit at that time, he used to ride to work each day.

    We concieved when DH was 39 (40 now), 16 years older than me. I was initially worried his age (& health) may make it take longer so after a few months of TTC he got his swimmers checked and everything is fine. It does worry me a little for future kids as we're likely to have more possibly when he's 45-50 which is the age I believe when male age starts having a higher risk, so to speak.

    In hindsight I would have liked to have started earlier (ie. 4 years ago) but can't do much about that anymore!

    Eta: DH is quite overweight (bmi about 38) but eats mostly healthily at home, doesn't exercise enough at all and up until a month or two ago was working horrible hours. Doesn't drink or smoke. Drank a lot when he was younger though.

    DH is 32 now but 25 when we conceived our first DD1. My OB says his super swimmers are the reason we have 4 daughters when I wasn't even meant to have 1

    BT it seems we have a fair amount in common!
    My DH is 13.5 years older than me. Could do with shedding a few kilos, should definitely exercise more.
    He does drink though, not excessively but will have a beer a night most of the time, and a few extras over the weekend. I wish he wouldn't though!
    He took maybe 3 of the menevit then outright refused to take them anymore - it was all just too much pressure :-p
    Did you have to go anywhere/do anything special in order to get his swimmers checked? Because I'd like that peace of mind at least

    That's great
    Did you have implications yourself then?

    The peace of mind really helped me to relax and believe that it was just a matter of time, just had to wait for the right embryo!

    DH just went to a GP and they told him where to go. (I think he had to go to a pathology place?)

    We got a 90 tablet pack of Menevit...DH had gotten through a lot of it 7 months. He would forget a lot.

    I was 32, DP was 42 when we conceived. We got pregnant on the 2nd month of trying, so age didn't seem to be a factor. He is a non smoker, moderate drinker, moderate exercise, slightly overweight.

    The general Q's & issues a woman faces with ttc but turned on its head and focused on the men
    When I conceived DS, exH was 44, I was 28, we fell pregnant first try (DTD once that month). He was fit, non-smoker, rarely drank.

    DD's dad was 45 when we conceived (I was 33), conceived using withdrawal method, she was not planned and we only DTD one weekend that month. He was/is very fit, non-smoker, light drinker.

    Clearly in my case age had no bearing, conceived both kids first go.
