Joel Bernstien, MD responded:
A couple with no physical barriers to conceiving only has a 15% chance each month of getting pregnant. Likely, you are just very normal! If you are less than 35 years old and have normal periods, then keep on trying for about a year before testing is indicated. If you are over 35, then 6 months of TTC before seeking help is routine.
