Varies: Pregnancy in the general population is only 15-20% per month among healthy normal couples under the age of 40. It is 10% if 40y/o or older with a 30-50% miscarriage rate. So infertility is defined as: no pregnancy occurs after one year in normal ovulating couples. So if you are younger it may take up to a year.
