Hello doctor,

Trying to get pregnant from last one year. All the tests for both of us are fine. The only problem is we are not very high on libido.

Welcome to icliniq.com.

By saying that all tests were normal, I hope you mean

1. Blood sugars, thyroid profile, and prolactin hormone levels.

2. Husband's semen analysis.

3. Wife's scan of uterus and ovaries.

4. Fallopian tube patency tested with HSG (hysterosalpingography) or laparoscopy.

Now for loss of libido, the following reasons are to be addressed.

1. Above mentioned blood tests.

2. Kindly seriously think of shedding few kgs. Your expected body weight is 52 to 57 kgs.

3. Try to reduce any physical or mental stress.

Diabetes has to be ruled out with HbA1c. If all these are normal, there is no reason for you to worry, and you will surely get pregnant. I hope I have clarified your query, do write back if any more questions.

It takes around two weeks to come positive.Although the chances are very less, you should rule out pregnancy. Do a test around 47th day. Amenorrhea can be because ...  Read Full »
