Impotence and Getting Pregnant

I long ago told my husband when he refused to acknowledge the problem that eventually my feelings would no longer be about sexual intimacy but about starting a family. Boy, was I right. I stopped taking the pill 5 years ago hoping that it would happen. About 2 years ago I tried to pinpoint the specific days I could become pregnant and would tell my husband about the "window of opportunity" in advance. I resorted to this only because, unless prompted, my husband would forget about sex altogether. I ALWAYS have to initiate or ask/plead.
The problem is, that even with Viagra, my husband is hardly ever able to E. He says that Viagra makes his chest hurt and makes him dizzy and as a result, he almost never finishes - he'll just stop right in the middle. I don't know what to do, I really want a family. I love this man dearly, but wonder if I am giving up true happiness and a chance to have a family. Yesterday, I showed him an article on home administered IUIs (the man would E into a container at home). He glanced at it and walked away. I asked him long ago to masturbate (in private) so he could determine if he can regularly E - like everything else, he hasn't even tried.
What other options are there? Has anyone else been through this (we are both in our 30s)?
