    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    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.
