Brief Answer: Tests required. Detailed Answer: Hi, Welcome back. For pregnancy to occur three things are required - Normal semen analysis, regular ovulation (egg formation & rupture) & patent tubes (wife). Irregular menses indicates anovulation in >95% cases, which mostly occurs due to PCOS at this age. Wife if not pregnant needs evaluation & treatment for ovulation. Kindly consult gynecologist/infertility specialist on 2nd/3rd day of next menses (if not pregnant) to get evaluated & treated. Regards.
