    About 85% of couples conceive within a year of trying.Fertility declines with age so as you get older it generally takes longer to get pregnant. If you are under 35 years of age you should seek medical advice if you haven't conceived within a year but if you are 35 years or older it's a good idea to see a fertility specialist if you haven't conceived after 6 months of trying.
