Dear Thembi

At this stage it is too early to be overly concerned. Investigation for infertility are recommended if patients after at least 9 months of unprotected intercourse. However at this point a semen analysis is highly recommended and early investigations should be considered if menstrual cycles are irregular or if there is any specific reason on history to warrant immediate investigations. Certainly the two abortions, if they were spontaneous and not willing terminations may be an important factor for immediate investigations.
