I ask this because I've tried the natural way and it just doesn't happen. I thought maybe its just not my time, but I'm getting up there in age and I no it won't be easy once I reach a certain age. Is there anything I should do?

Brief Answer: Detailed answer given below Detailed Answer: Hi, If you are not able to conceive, then both you and your partner have to undergo few tests. Your partner needs to get his semen analysis done and also a scan to rule out varicocele. You need to undergo hormonal studies and tests to see whether the tubes are free of any blockage. Let me know if I can assist you further. Regards, Dr.Ratnakar Kini
