Dear fairy1986,

Hello and welcome. It is often suggested that once you've been trying to conceive for a year without results, you consult with a doctor. Your husband can also ask his nephrologist (kidney doctor) for expert advice on the topic.

Here's an article on Fertility Tests for Men that may be helpful. You may also want to visit our Trying To Conceive communities for more support.

Best wishes to you both,

Laughter is the closest distance between two people. -Victor Borge
