Dear Chacha

The fact that your husband has diabetes can affect his sperm count and quality. If however he is well controlled then it may not affect your chances of falling pregnant. The best way to determine if the presence of diabetes in your husband will affect your fertility is to assess your husband’s sperm sample for the count, the quality and the motility.
