Basics: The cited average wait for a desired pregnancy is 6 mo with a range from weeks to a year. After a year it is reasonable to have both potential parents evaluated in a fertility center to assess any new issues that need to be addressed. If trouble is found they are able to explain options needed to establish a pregnancy.
