Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

It's only 11 months since you married. Infertility is declared only after 12-15 months of having regular unprotected intercourse. You have time and you are very young. However, for treatment of infertility both partners need to be physically examined and evaluated after the required investigations are done.

You can have semen examination done to check your fertility level. Normal count is 15-200 million sperm per milliliter of semen. Mobility and morphology of the sperm also matters. No worries there are medications to improve the count, volume and motility. Take high protein diet and stay away from addictions.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
Regards,
Dr. Nupur K.
