On Infertility and Obtaining Embalming Fluid

First time here, it came reccommended to me by a fellow author, but I feel good about it!

Well, I have two issues in the same piece of fiction I'm writing.

One: I need to know if there's a type of infertility that's hereditary, but recessive in males. One of the main characters has just married and is upset because her husband wants children, so hasn't told him she's near infertile, through a condition passed from her father. (the father himself was a miracle conception, I've yet to work the kinks out of it) All the women on her father's side have fertility issues. I tried searching different medical sites, but can't find any fertility conditions that fit the bill.

Two: A different character has been keeping a corpse in his room. (Creepy kid.) Others helped him embalm her in a bathtub of embalming fluid, and while they went out of town to obtain the stuff, I need to know what a legal reason would be to buy an assload of it if you're not a legal mortician or medical examiner of some kind. This is keeping with the American legal system.

Thank you much for any suggestions!

ETA: Thank you all very much for your advice and helpful tidbits. I'll find myself coming here often! Huzzah!
