The only way to know is to try. Every woman has a natural age-related decline in fertility. Some declines are faster than others. If you don't get pregnant within 6 months and really want a baby, I would seek help to know what options you have to amplify your chances. If you want to know what your ovarian reserve is even before beginning to try, you could get some blood work (AMH & a cycle day 2-4 FSH and estradiol level). Good luck!
