If your boyfriend has a half brother and a half sister that do not seem to be able to have children should you be concerned that you may not be able to conceive?

Infertility is not hereditary. Obviously if someone was infertile, there would be no offspring to pass on their defunct genes to! However a low-sperm count could be genetic.

There is also some medications that women have innocently taken in past that have caused their offspring to have difficulties - such has an anti-morning sickness drug from the 60's caused many girls to be born with an incomplete cervix.

There is no medical reason I can think of that would cause both male and female offspring to be infertile. It could be just a coincidence his siblings are having difficulties conceiving. And presumably your b'f is quite a different age from his siblings and from a different relationship, this means that their physical environment was different growing up. This would rule out an environmental problem (ie exposure to radiation).

I would not worry too much about it, but if you are trying to conceive and are having difficulties, it would be a valid point to ponder.

First show your brother all nice things your boyfriend is and if he still doesn't like him tell you brother to talk to your boyfriend so your brother can get to know him. And he should like you boyfriend after he gets to know him
