Try 10 years before falling pregnant - that's what happened to us.

the best advice i can give is go for a normal check-up with your gynae and explain to your gynae. let your doctor send you for a blood test to see if you are ovulating. don't wait for a year and then start with all the test. I waited plus/minus 16 months before i went to the doctor and she did a test showing that i was not ovulating. One month after she put me on clomid i fell pregnant.

If there are no problem with you then seek help for your boyfriend and then you need to wait till it happen. If nothing happens in one year then go for other type of help.

good luck

Hi Mo, I think it's important that your fiance understands the concept of how long it can possibly take to fall pregnant - and you've come to the right place to find out exactly how long it CAN take, so you'll have to manage his expectations so he won't put pressure on you. When you're worried and not relaxed, it could delay it even further. Good luck

Hi Mo,

Please explain to your fiance that it can take a normal healthy couple up to one year before they conceive. It doesn't just happen as easily as we think it does. If it doesn't happen after a year, you can then seek fertility treatment.

However if you wish you can do basic tests to make sure that things are in order for you to fall pregnant, i.e. an ovulation test for yourself and a semen analysis for your fiance. If things are not right your doctor will then advise further.
