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

I am a 38-year-old male, 6 ft in height and 87 kgs in weight. I had been diagnosed with moderate scalp Psoriasis in late 2007, after which I went in for homeopathic treatment for nearly a year. There was a some relief and I discontinued treatment in 2009. In 2010 I developed reddish Psoriatic rashes on my chest for which I have been under no specific medication. Now in 2011, a semen sample analysis was done for me in connection with efforts for my wife's conceiving a second child. The results showed male infertility with my condition being termed Oligo Asthena Teraspermia (OAT) which is essentially a negative on all three factors of male fertility. I happened to learn that immunological disorders like Psoriasis contribute to Male infertility in at least 10% of the cases. Is this true? And should I see a connection between my two conditions?
