QUESTION

Dear Midwife,
My partner and I are trying to conceive and after over a year I am getting a little worried. I have had blood tests and they were all fine. Any help or advice would be appreciated.

ANSWER

You say that you have been tested, but has your partner? In about 40% of the cases, that is the issue. Fortunately, male problems are usually much easier to deal with than female problems, and there is a good chance for a successful pregnancy in many cases. After a year, both partners should have a full work-up IMHO, assuming that you are well-educated about when to have intercourse.
