12 months average: 12m is the average amount of time to get pregnant. If you have been trying for 12m then you need a complete workup by your obgyn. Otherwise, get an ovulation predictor and try to time your sex when you ovulate. You can calculate when you should ovulate by subtracting 14 from you cycle length. I.e. if your cycle is usually 30 days then 30 - 14 is 16. You should ovulate on day 16.

Late period negative pregnancy test, what could be wrong? : (

Didn't ovulate: If you have one off month, you could have just not ovulated...Stress, weight change, and illness can all cause this as an isolated occurrence.
