How long should I try to have a baby before giving up?

Personal Choice. How long, and how much to spend, on the quest to have a baby is a very personal decision, best made after long discussions between you, your partner, and your dr. I recomend the book "taking charge of your fertility" by toni weschler to all my patients trying to concieve - it can answer a ton of questions. She also has a website, www.Tcoyf.Com.
