Mightymama1976 - I'd be tempted to talk to a fertility clinic, 1 to find out which supps they recommend for both of you to take for anti- oxidizing both eggs and sperm. 2 they can take a sample of your dh spernat and assess it (not specifically for asd) but for general health and DNA disintegration issues.
We are both 40 and had a successful ivf after that bday - I'm not suggesting you go that path... Just we were on supps to keep everything as vital and young as possible and I think it helped (I'm pg with twins at about 1.8% chance). For example for me it was fish oil, vitamin e, megafol, vitamin b, cq10 (I think I'm forgetting a couple) for dh zinc, folic acid, (I added cq10 to his) and things like goji berries and pepitas (yep from the fertility instructions)
Hope this helps! The sperm assessment will really let you know whether he's fertile or not.
