  • Have you talked to your Doc yet?? If you have been calculating your ovulation and trying at the right times it may be worth a check-up with your doc. Definitely if you reach the year mark you need to see your doc about it!!

  • I know it SEEMS like a long time to you, but 5 or 6 months is not that long...try and track your will tell you when you are most fertile.

  • Takes a healthy couple, with no fertility problems, up to a year and a half. If it's been a year or longer talk to a fertility doc.

  • Takes an AVERAGE of 100 "tries" before becoming pregnant. Some women get pregnant on the first "try," so that takes someone else up to 200 "tries" before they're able to conceive... Don't stress about it, or it'll take even longer! Give it at least a year before consulting a specialist...

  • I know it's frusterating but stay with it, track your cycles, try an OPK ( ovulation predictor kit). I agree that I would wait a year before seeing a specialst. It's a hard wait but it's worth it. I tried for 3 years before getting pregnant with my ds.
