Some women find it easy to get pregnant, others don't. The key to becoming pregnant is determining when ovulation will occur. A woman is usually able to get pregnant for about 5 days each month, when ovulation occurs. On average, ovulation occurs 12 to 16 days before the menstrual period begins. Because sperm can live for 3 to 5 days in a woman's reproductive tract, it is possible to become pregnant if intercourse occurs several days before ovulation.
# Most women have a 15 to 25 percent chance of getting pregnant during their cycle.
# Nearly 50 percent of couples conceive during the first 3 months.
# About 75 percent of couples conceive during the first 6 months.
# Up to 90 percent of couples conceive during the first year.
Once you have been trying to conceive for more than a year without success, it may be time to make an appointment with a fertility specialist for an evaluation.
For millions of couples, trying to conceive will be much harder than they expect. This is because as many as 1 in 10 couples experiences problems with infertility. Fertility is an issue that involves both men and women.
When couples are having difficulties becoming pregnant, it is generally the female who will seek treatment first. However, the statistics show that men are the infertile partners in 40-50% of couples unable to get pregnant. One won't work without the other and in many cases where couples have difficulties getting pregnant both she and he have some problems.
Keep trying for at least a year before you worry about fertility. If you are still concerned after that go see a fertility specialist.
It depends on how long you've been trying. If it's been over a year, you should see a fertility specialist. They can check you and your partner and check for things like ovulation, sperm count, your cervix, etc.... Good luck!!!
suggest make the necessary tests, ask ob-gyne. i've been married 3 yrs before having my 1st baby. i had undergone an ectopic preg already twice ( how sad 🙁 ), my hubby went to have a sperm count ( ok ), and had a histerogram (check if fallopian tubes are ok & not blocked).
