Dear Ren
Your height, BMI, together with your husband’s diabetes may well be a contributing factor. If your menstrual cycles are irregular, this may well point to a metabolic disorder as well which may require further investigation and treatment. Diabetes may contribute to sperm problems; I recommend a semen analysis be done as soon as possible.
