How long will it take to get pregnant?

My husband and I have been trying for five months without any luck. How long will it take to get pregnant?

If I had a magic 8 ball that said anything other than “answer looks foggy, please try again”, maybe I could tell you. Even when both the man and woman are perfectly healthy and timing the BDing just right, it can still take a while to hit the jackpot. Here are some statistics for you:

25% get BPF in the first month
60% get BFP by six months
75% get BFP by nine months
80% get BFP by twelve months
90% get BFP by eighteen months

Of course, if you are older or have any fertility issues it can take longer than average. If you are over 35, you can go to your doctor for fertility testing after six months of trying. For those under 35, most doctors won’t do fertility testing until you’ve been trying for at least a year.

Good luck!
