How long should I try to get pregnant before I get concerned about failure?
Most healthy Females under the age of 35, with regular periods and a healthy partner, should be able to get pregnant within one year of trial.
30% of females get pregnant within the first three months, but taking up to a year does not make you less fertile. It is just a matter of luck/time that takes all the factors needed for pregnancy to gather together.
Most females get disappointed and even anxious when they fail to conceive despite having sex when the ovulation test turns positive when other factors that we have no control over need to be taken into consideration as causes of delay :
- The ability of the mature egg to leave the ovary.
- The ability of the fallopian tube to catch the egg.
- The ability of at least one sperm (of the millions ejaculated into the vagina ) to reach the tube.
- The ability of the sperm that reaches the egg to fertilize it.
Nature takes its time to get all these factors orchestrated together in the same month.
Because of the aforementioned, when attempting pregnancy, it is highly advised to attempt on a monthly basis for a whole year before bringing the failure to the attention of your fertility doctor.

Does sex more than once a day reduce the chance of pregnancy in a specific month?
This is possible because it may deplete the sperm reserve before the ovulation time is due.
Does position during sex affect the outcome?
