In brief: Infertile 2 yrs

Less than 1% of normal fertile couples would not be pregnant after 2 yrs.
Female age is the more important and your age is young so you have a great chance if you get tested by a fertility specialist and treatment. You need to be seen now because of the length of your infertility. You need evaluation for all the causes, including male factors even though your partner has 4 children.

In brief: It depends

Depending on your age, how long you've been trying and whether or not you have suspicions of problems in certain areas (sperm, egg, tubes, uterus), your best strategy may be to patiently keep trying or to explore some medical assistance.
More information is needed to guide you specifically.

In brief: See Ob/Gyn

See a ob/gyn or infertility specialist for an infertility evaluation.
Infertility is defined as failure to conceive after one year of unprotected intercourse, and affects ~15% of couples. Evaluation usually involves confirmation of ovulation, patency of fallopian tubes, and assessment of sperm characteristics. Abnormalities/dysfunction in any one of these may make it more difficult to conceive.
