Thanks for the query.

Assuming your cycles are regular, from your history I do not find any major complaints.

However as you are unable to achieve a pregnancy despite repeated attempts, it warrants a detailed evaluation of both partners. You need to get some basic investigations like hormonal assays, ultrasound abdomen / pelvis examination and tubal testing. In addition your partner also will need to get his semen analysed by a test (semen analysis).

Your gynecologist / infertility expert can help you get these tests. I will be available for more assistance once the aforementioned tests are done.

Hope this helps. Let me know if you have any other queries.
