Dear MJ & MM

Your wife once conceived 12 years old and therefore I would start investigations with her first. In particular evaluation of tubal patency is extremely important and this can be undertaken either through X-ray called an HSG (histosalpingogram) or alternately a diagnostic procedure called a laparoscopy. The laparoscopy will have the added advantage of excluding possible growths or endometriosis and will certainly be enhance the possibilities of conception significantly.
