First attempt for baby has failed. Husband had Jaundice and I take anti-depressants. Related?

Hi, my name is Kasturi. I and my husband have been trying to start a family, but our very first attempt at it has been a failure and we are both quite depressed as I could not conceive after having intercourse on my 10th, 14th and 18th day of MC. My husband feels it may be because of him suffering from jaundice three months ago, while I feel it may be due to the anti-depressants I had to take some months back. Kindly help. Many thanks.

Hello Kasturi
Thanks for your query.

Get a semen analysis of your husband.
As far as anti depressants are concerned there is nothing to be concerned.
Chances of conception is 20-25 % every cycle even if everything is normal.
So you both need not worry and keep trying.
Chances of having healthy baby at the end of one year of trying is as high as 85%.
Good luck.
