Hello:
I was trying to get pregnant. I follow my ovulation calender and I try to have sex on those days. It's been seven months and I am still not pregnant. I am 30. Should there be anything to worry about.

It can take a healthy couple up to a year to get pregnant, even with perfect timing. Most doctors won't even see your for testing unless it's been a year, unless your over 35 then it's six months.

It can take some time for a couple to get pregnant. The average time is about 3 months, but it can take up to a year. While a doctor might not recommend any intervention methods until a year has passed, it might be worth discussing this with a medical professional. They might be able to run some labs to confirm whether or not there are factors impeding your ability to conceive (abnormal hormone levels, sperm viability, etc.). Just note that insurance companies often don't cover procedures that are strictly for fertility, so inquire about coverage prior to scheduling an appointment.
