Hi.the first thimg you should know is- infertility means unable to concieve even after one year of unprotected regular Sex. If that's the case it may be due to numerous causes, in womens- it might be due to uterine abnormality,hormonal imbalance, fibroid in uterus,sometimes infection like T.B would have scarred fallopian tube which might be a cause,certain medications, obesity etc. In men- decreased sperm count, chronic alcoholism,smoking,obesity,premature ejaculation,medications, testicular infection or trauma etc.so get this things checked. Based on the history you have given you should also know that since male genital also has a separate blood supply, diabetes and hypertension can affect those blood vessels and affect in concieving, treating that cause is very happy essential.You should know that there are 20-25% cases where the cause is unknown for infertility. As I already mentioned if you are not concieving for more than one year, you can try invitro fertilisation(IVF) technique which has a good sucess rate. Kindly consult a obstetrician to know about the actual reason of infertility in both of you.
