hello prapti..
thanks for trusting the health care magic doctors for ur health related queries..
firstly​ i want to tell you that for getting pregnancy, the tests are not necessarily required in the first year of marriage if u people r trying without using any contraception. For that u should have regular menses and age between 15-30 yr and ur husband should have normal semen analysis.

the various tests are available now a days which are only done if women are not conceiving due some major or minor problems either in wife or a husband, accordingly some tests are non invasive and some required major or minor surgery.

with the above discussion u can try out my suggestions-
1. RELAX, relax...u can wait for first yr since ur marriage, if everything is normal as i discussed above.
2. if u r still in hurry..then visit nearby gynecologist or infertility specialist. he/she can help you.

good luck..

regards- Dr sudha rani panagar
