While it may seem that your friends seem to keep getting pregnant with ease, the truth is women in their 30s who have unprotected sex only have about a 15% chance of conceiving each month. On average, couples take 8 months to get a positive pregnancy test. Shady Grove Fertility encourages couples under 35 that have been trying to conceive (TTC) for over a year to schedule an appointment with a fertility specialist. For couples over 35, meeting with a fertility specialist after 6 months is recommended.
