How long should we try to get pregnant on our own before it would be good to see a specialist?

In brief: 1 year or 6 months

If woman is younger than 35yo, a year of ttc prior to seeking infertility evaluation is reasonable.
If a woman is > 35 years old, recommend 6 months of ttc prior to seeking evaluation. Duration may be sooner if suspect ovulatory dysfunction (irregular periods), tubal factor (multiple pelvic surgeries), or male factor (previous testicular surgery).

In brief: 1 years

Your chance of becoming pregnant during any one cycle is approximately 8% if there are no fertility problems, so it takes approximately 12 cycles before we would become concerned that there could be a problem.
