Bell shaped curve: The ease of pregnancy depends upon the health of each partner, the age of each partner, the quality of the reproductive tract and some inherited factors. It is a skewed bell shaped curve with a peak in the twenties, and a long tail through the 30s and 40s. Some of course never can get pregnant due to failure of some of these factors.

In other words: If a couple actively trying to achieve pregnancy and the woman does not conceive within 1 year, a fertility specialist (reproductive endocrinology and infertility) ought to be consulted to possibly identify the cause and offer treatment.
