Dear hopefull.
The definition of infertility would mean that there is difficulty in falling pregnant after one year of regular unprotected intercourse. That is because 90% of couples should achieve a pregnancy after one year of trying, I suggest that you can wait until that year is over, which would be another 4 or 5 months trying on your own to conceive. If you have still not fallen pregnant after 4 or 5 months I suggest that you see your gynaecologist so that test can be done to acetate if there is a problem or not.

Hi Hopeful,

It depends on how old you are. If you are younger than 35 - you can wait another +/- 4 months, but if you are older than 35 - then I would suggest that you go to a fertility specialis soon.

This is what I gathered from all the research I''ve done on the internet.

Or maybe let your hubby do a sperm analysis so long.
