In brief: Female age and ...

Up to a year of trying if under 35, six months if 35-39, right away if 40 or older. Not everyone would agree on the last group but fertility drops every year after age 40 and 41-42 year olds do better with fertility treatment with own eggs than 43+.
See specialist if any obvious issue: irregular periods, abnormal semen analysis, endometriosis, pid/chlamydia, smoker, ovary surgery, 2 miscarriages.
