ANSWER: You are ready to start a family, congratulations! For a healthy woman under the age of 35, one year of trying to get pregnant may signify that a visit to a fertility doctor might be helpful. Women over the age of 35 should consider seeking help after six months. Age and medical conditions of both partners can play a big part in your difficulties in conceiving.
