I got my iud out three months ago. I'm 35 and my fiancé and I would love to get pregnant. I've gotten my period twice and we've been having tons of sex. Should I be worried that I'm not pregnant yet?

No. You've only been trying for three months. It can take a healthy couple up to a year to get pregnant.

That being said, you may be considered "older" for the purposes of pregnancy. While a younger woman might be told to try for a year before seeing a doctor, an "older" woman may be told try for six months then see your doctor. Call your doctor and see what they say.

Just an aside, my doctor considers a woman 35 and over to be "older" for the purposes of pregnancy.
