    With a 'normal' healthy couple it can take up to 12 months to conceive. If you've been trying over this time they recommend a drs visit to check all is well.

    I think it can take up to 12 months for a couple without any issues to get pregnant. However, if you are over 35 it is recommended that if you aren't pregnant within 6 months of trying that you should see your doctor.

    If you track your cycle, 6 months is all you need before you will be able to identify any problems. If you have a chance to read, a great book is Taking Charge of Your Fertility by Toni Weschler.

    Yes, but even with tracking drs won't do anything much about any potential problems until after 12 months! Unless as a previous person has stated- you are over 35.

    You need to work out whether you are ovulating or not by charting temps- fertility friend app is popular and using ovulation predictor tests
    Your partner or husband can go to a gp at any time to get a form for a semen analysis. It's common for women to blame themselves, when 30% of the time it's a man problem
