Hi!
If you were my patient, I would advise you that your partner is probably fine.
Slightly crazy to consider having a baby at that age, but unlikely to be sterile.
If you have been trying for over 6 months you may want to contact your doctor for evaluation.  There is also SpermCheck which is available online to test for the sperm count.
Because of his age, there is an increased risk of birth defects, so you might wish to discuss this with your doctor beforehand too--there are very good tests for birth defects available these days.
Good luck!
