If that is not a problem for him, then I do not suspect there would be a problem in achieving a pregnancy. There may be other genetic components that I am not aware of for your husband and can be questioned during a preconception counseling or fertility appointment. But as long as both of you are under the age of 30, then it would be fair to give it a year of attempting a pregnancy on your own. Open neural tube defect are usually multi-factorial and may not be reoccurring. Best wishes and congratulations on starting your family. READ MORE
