Hello,

Thanks for posting your query.

To find out if you can lead a normal married life you can go to your physician or an infertility clinic for a semen examination and blood tests like testosterone levels and STD screening.

For blood tests blood sample is taken and semen sample is collected after three days of abstinence by masturbation.

I hope this answers your query effectively.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
Dr. Praveen Tayal.
