Hello,

Its been 1.9 months my sister got married and she is trying to conceive from past 7-8 months and is not successful. She is 30 yrs old. recently, she was diagnosed with thyroid problem and she is on medication for that. but her doctor has asked her to keep trying. she has been given medicines which she is supposed to take for lifelong. She was also told that her husband's motility was quite low. Adhering to these factors, when can she conceive? Does it affect more or can she conceive under these circumstances? does it take more time or how? I am younger to her to go ahead and I want her to conceive first. I am getting worried day by day as hers is getting delayed. Please help!!

Hello,

Welcome to ehealthforum and thanks for writing

Delayed conception can be due to various factors and in your sister's case thyroid issue seems to be one of the factors which can cause difficulty in conception. Along with that sperm motility being low seems to be contributing to it. Sperm count, ph, fructose level,number of motile sperms also matter a lot. You have not metioned the details of the sperm analysis. If sperm count is normal and some sperms are motile then pregnancy is a possibility.

But it is difficult to comment as when she would be able to conceive. Investigations report would have helped in commenting further. Continue with the treatment as advised and be in regular follow up with the treating Gynaecologist. Take the thyroid medications as advised and have healthy balanced diet.

Take care!
