He has a son from his previous relationship.

I'm 22 and got married last year in December. My husband and I have been trying to conceive and nothing's happened. I don't know what to do.

Dr Nomteto answers:

To determine the problem, you both need to have a clinical assessment, even if he already has a child. The body is not static but ever-changing. He will need to do a semen analysis and you'll need to monitor your menstrual cycle for three months and take a menstrual calendar with you so the health practitioner can determine your ovulation period and ensure you're sexually active during that time.
