How long should we try to concieve before seeking help?


A healthy couple (between the ages of 29-33) has only a 20-25% chance of becoming pregnant during any given month. The chances are even lower among older couples.

If you are in your 20s or early 30s, doctors recommend waiting a full year before seeking help getting pregnant. It seems like an incredibly long time to wait, but it often takes this long for even the healthiest couples to conceive.

If you are a woman over the age of 35, experts recommend you see a reproductive endocrinologist if you haven’t become pregnant after trying for six months. A woman’s egg supply decreases over time, and that reduction picks up speed after 35.

I hope that helps, please do ask questions below for more!
