Please note that all the answers we give are on a generic basis only, as we cannot provide more in-depth answers without access to your medical history. If you need a more detailed response, tailored to you, we would recommend a consultation with one of our Fertility Specialists for more comprehensive medical advice.

It is difficult to answer your question. My advice to you would be to have a fertility MOT and this will give you an idea of your chances to conceive. Sex selection is illegal in this country so you would not be able to influence the sex of your baby should you conceive.
