welcome to HealthcareMagic
How long it will take to get pregnant it is difficult to say but if your periods are regular;fallopian tubes are patent;you are having proper ovulation;and your husbands semen analysis report comes normal then you may get pregnant.Also since your age is nearing 40 yrs you should keep in mind that there are few problems in pregnancy in this age like the baby may be born with genetic abnormality;you may also have complicated pregnancy so you should try as early as possible but the better option is to go in for artificial insemination.
All the best

How serious is a grade 1 subclinical varicoele? I m 35 years old, and I was just diagnosed with a grade 1 varicocele. Of course I drew a blank while with my doctor, so rather than wait two months for another appointment, I m glad that I can ask these questions here: - can a grade 1 varicocele affect fertility? My wife and I are trying to conceive. - my sperm count is 10 mil, but my motility and everything else are fine. Is my varicocele and low sperm count related? Why or why not? - about 5 years ago I experienced a dull ache in my testicles. It either eventually went away, or I just got used to it. After researching online (big mistake I know), I read that swollen varicoceles can cause this. Can a grade 1 varicocele cause this? I only ask because the ache only returned after I got the news. Is it all in my head? - can varicoceles get worse? over time, can it go from a grade 1 to a grade 3? Can grade 1 develop to the worm stage? - if the ache does not go away, should I consider surgery? Would that help my fertility chances as well? Thanks for your help.

Me and my husband have been trying to conceive a baby for 1 year. My concern is that every time he ejaculates its always a small amount, thin, watery, and completely clear. Even when we abstain from sex for a few days for it to try and build up its always the same. Can this alone be an alarm to go get a sperm check done?
