One year: For a normal couple, the chances of achieving pregnancy each month spontaneously is around 10-15%.
Dr. Dennis Higginbotham

Be patient: It can take a normal couple up to 18 months to conceive. If you are having regular monthly periods it should be just a matter of time. You should be taking a daily vitamin that contains at least 400 mcg of folate (folic acid).
