Try for 6-12 months: You have a chance of getting pregnant each month, but it's not 100% - a healthy couple in their late teens/early 20's has up to a 30% chance each month.

This timeframe does not change after you have had a pregnancy or miscarriage. Each time frame to conception is totally different and is like rolling dice until your number comes up. Could be several tries or only one or two. Best of luck... ...Read more
