In brief: Depends on your age

If you are less than 35 years old you may want to continue trying for up to a year before seeking assistance unless there is something in your history that leads you to suspect that you may have difficulty conceiving (hx of abdominal surgery, endometriosis, irregular periods, etc).
If you are over the age of 35 and it has been more than 6 month of trying you may also want to seek medical care.

In brief: Might mean nothing

The majority of couples who are not pregnant by 4 months have nothing wrong with them. This would be a different answer if you have been trying for 12 months.

In brief: Yes

The cited average is 6 mo trying before a desired pregnancy with a range from a few weeks to a year.Most would consider a consultation by both with a fertility center after that period.
