Our expert says:
My advise to you is that you are being too concerned very early. On the point on the different tests, your husband’s sperm can be tested by having a semen analysis done and the cost of which ranges between R500 to R800. You can have your side tested by doing hormonal profile, pelvic ultrasounds and HSG. The chance of anyone conceiving naturally under normal circumstances is only 15%. Approximately 68-70% should achieve a pregnancy within 6 months and 90% should achieve a pregnancy within a year of trying. We only start testing for a problem of fertility when one does not succeed in achieving a pregnancy after 1 year of trying.
