Firstly, you have not been married for so long to call you infertile. Moreover, majority conceive during the 2-3 year period after marriage. So, there is no need to worry in the first place. Regular unprotected coitus, without any problems during the process if practised during the fertile period (around the mid-cycle) is sure to solve your problem. If not, you can see a doctor for further array of investigations after a year or so. Take care.

Thanks for choosingHCM

its just 1 year after your marriage ,you may not worry and can wait for some more time
but as you are anxious i will let you know the reasons
this is going to be a long one as i want to provide you with lot of information so that you can decide what to be done .

coming to the query
Did your wife undergo a scan?
why i am asking this is getting regular periods do not confirm fertility
there are a lot many factors required

if all infertility test are done,and no problem found you can ask this

see you both need to have an intercourse when she ovulates (13 th day of her cycle,if her cycles are regular and repeats every 28 to 30 days).
you may think that you are having intercourse the whole month but missing on the days around which she ovulates, will make you fail

if any or both of you are obese there may be problems

all her hormone levels along with thyroid profile need to be normal

she may also need to go for usg to know whether her fallopian tubes are patent

you havent mentioned your age and age gap between both of you
female has more chances to get pregnant before age of 30 and could deliver a healthy baby
with increase in age a males sperm count tends to get lower

Any of your family members also lack children?
then there may be similar reason for you too

according to WHO a count of20 million /ml or above is normal
but in some infertility clinics 60 to 110 million /ml is considered to be normal

apart from count ,motility of sperm is important
more than 50% of sperm needs to be motile
and motility of sperm should be speed and in forward direction

so all these counts

get her Hb% checked
take treatment if she is anaemic
she also needs to take folic acid tablets as she is trying to concieve(to avoid neural tube defects in the fetus)
so go to your doctor get all necessary tests done
take medication if needed

wish you good luck
hope i answered all your queries
feel free to contact me for further queries
thank you
