How long should women try to get pregnant before calling the doctor?
1 doctor weighed in

In brief: 6-12 months
In most cases, one should try for 12 months before seeking any help, though if you are over 35 you may want to cut that to only 6 months.
At 40, i would get help pretty quickly. It is worthwhile to see your ob/gyn and tell them you are trying to get pregnant, as there is a number of things that they may want to talk to you about.
