In brief: About 10-15%
Infertility occurs in about 10-15% of couples.
We believe that normal fertility is about 20% per month and cumulatively 90% of couples succeed in a year. In 2 years over 99% of normal couples should be pregnant. It takes longer when you are older. We recommend that you see a specialist after 1 yr if female age <35 and after 6 months if older. Best wishes.

In brief: About 1 in 6 couples
Infertility (not get pregnant after trying for a year) affects about 1 in 6 couples or 15%.
For most young couples, under 35, it is ok to try for a year before seeing a fertility dr. (reproductive endocrinologist / infertility md or rei). If there is an obvious problem (irregular cycles, history of pelvic inflammatory disease or endometriosis) even young couples should get an evaluation sooner.

This answer is not helpful because one would need more information young? How young? Any history of medical problems, pelvic infection? Irregular cycles.
. How many years have you been trying is also very important.
