Questions about wanted to get pregnant?
So does your husband have to come with you to the first visit to obgyn if you guys want to start trying to have kids?

You and your husband want to start trying to have kids. If you want to visit an OB/GYN first, does that mean you're having difficulty getting pregnant? If you don't anticipate having problems getting pregnant, there's no need for a man to EVER accompany his wife to an appointment with an OB/GYN.
There's no need for your husband accompanying you on your first visit to an OB/GYN. The doctor is going to be talking to YOU and examining YOU; he's not going to be talking with your husband and examining him. Your husband will have to stay in the waiting room while all that is going on.
If you two are having difficulty getting pregnant, a different doctor (not an OB/GYN - a different kind of specialist) will talk with your husband and examine him separately at a later date. There's no need for you to accompany your husband on that visit either. Just like your husband, you'll have to stay in the waiting room while all that's going on.

I never had a obgyn visit before we started trying to conceive. It's not customary here, and I actually don't really see the point anyway. We were both in good general health. No particular questions at the time. It's not like an obgyn should do any fertility testing on a young couple before they even start trying to conceive. And they can't see the quality of your eggs and sperm just by looking at you. So what would I be doing there? Getting advice to start taking folic acid? Already knew that.
When you ARE pregnant, it is useful for the father to come to your first appointment, since they like to get medical history from both parents.

No, it's totally optional.

Only if you need to have sex in the Obgyn's office to make sure you know what you are doing.

No, there is no reason for him to attend.
If a couple has questions about his fertility, he would want to see a fertility specialist.

No? You can just start trying. You should be taking folic acid before you do, though.
