Brief Answer:
You need some basic tests to evaluate the cause of not conceiving

Detailed Answer:
Hi, welcome to healthcaremagic. I think if your wife has normal periods and no other obvious problems, you can try naturally for 6 to 7 more months. The chance to conceive in a normal couple in one cycle is only 5 to 7 percent. So, you need to try atleast 1 year before undergoing any tests or treatment. Be in contact with your wife every 2 to 3 days after her periods stop. It will increase chances of getting pregnant. If it doesn't work, then you can go for evaluation. Do a thyroid profile and prolactin levels and a ultrasound for your wife's uterus and follicles in ovaries on 2nd or 3rd day of periods. Also a semen analysis of yours will be needed. Track your wife's follicles growth by repeated ultrasound. If ovulation is happening and other things are fine, you can try with some medicines for growth of her follicles. Hope I have answered your question.

My husband and I are trying to concieve but just recently had a sperm analysis done that came back as "no sperm". After an ultrasound we found that he has a right epididymal head cyst. Could this be the cause of our sperm analysis results and will we be able to correct it so we can concieve?
