Hello,
Thanks for choosing health care magic for posting your query.
Yours wife diabetic state is not a very serious problem. the same can be taken care of by maintaining a proper diet, exercise and keeping the blood sugars under normal.A diabetic person can have a baby.
You need to get the USG done to assess for the presence of varicocele. Take fresh fruits, do take time out for exercise.
Even if everything is normal then regular daily sex may take 3-4 months to conceive. In your case it may take a longer time (uncertain) but yes the conception is very much possible. If there is a problem you can try in vitro fertilization.
Hope I am able to answer your concerns.
If you have any further query, I would be glad to help you.

If your wife's diabetes is under controll, do not worry about pregnancy. If semen analysis shows less count and ? less motility, ideal treatment for you is IVF-ICSI. For more detail you can visit our website i.e www.ivfclinic.com

Hi doctor, im hoping someone can help me. these topics are not easy to be open about. i have been on the 2 month injection, nur- isterate for about 2years now. During the past two months, I've used various types of drugs recreationally. Mdma, E, cocaine, lsd, shrooms and cannabis. I've noticed that my menstrual cycle is earlier, longer and heavier. I'm due for my next injection in 3 weeks and I've been bleeding for 9days.

should I be worried? what type of effect could these drugs have on the contraceptive? does it reduce the contraceptives efficacy? also, I've been told that the injection is known to promote infertility. I've been on it for 2years and I am 20 years old, should I change my contraceptive?

Hi,I am a 31 y/o currently seeing an infertility doctor for my husbands low sperm count. We know we have to do ivf/icsi and we've already paid for it. I went to my clinic for day 2 and 3 testing and they cancelled our cycle b/c they said that I have elevated FSH levels. They said it happens sometimes and that I could just be stressed. They told me to come back next cycle and try again. Could this mean I could be going through early menopause or premature ovarian failure? Are there other tests they could do before getting a definitive answer?
