Our expert says:
If you do not fall pregnant within a year after stopping contraceptive, you need tests to see if there are any problems preventing conception. I usually suggest that the husband goes for a sperm test first - painless, quick and relatively cheap. If his sperm is healthy, the wife should go for tests to see if she ovulates, and if the tubes to the ovaries are open - this may involve examination under anaesthetic that can be slightly painful and costly. Best to do this at a gynecologist that specializes with infertility or at an infertility clinic at a provincial hospital.
