Thanks for writing back.

Yes, there are essential set of tests which would be needed to determine the fertility. They are :

Thyroid tests,
Complete blood count with hemoglobin estimation,
A follicular scan
Endometrial thickness estimation

In males:
Semen analysis.

Also yes, you may have to quit drinking till you couple conceive, as drinking can affect the sperm count.

Hope, I answered your query.

Wish you good luck.
