Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Inability to conceive needs to be evaluated in both the partners for the cause, consult a fertility consultant and let them help you in this regard and find out the possible etiology for that.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
