In brief: It depends

For younger women (younger than 35), we can use the traditional definition of 1 year or trying to conceive.
For women 35-40, 6 months is enough time to consider seeing a specialist for an evaluation. And for women older than 40, it is important to seek help as soon as you are ready!
