Ask Dr Nomteto: Am I infertile?

By Drum Digital

I’m a 28 year-old guy and tried to have a baby with my ex-girlfriend for three years without success.


We broke up last year and in May she got a new boyfriend and now she’s pregnant. I’ve been trying again with my present girlfriend without any luck.

Sometimes I have pains in my kidneys in the morning.

Where can I get help?


If you have not done so already, I strongly advise you visit your GP and discuss having a sperm analysis test.

This will determine whether you are fertile or not, as the laboratory will look at your sperm count, its mobility, speed, volume, size and shape.

You will also need to rule out any systematic disease. The pain you feel in your kidneys is a very subjective assessment.

Rather get to the root cause of that pain from a doctor instead of just focusing on the symptom.
