I read it could take a year to get pregnant is this true?

Your chances of concieving are highest in your twenties and they reduce each year after 32 or so. Even if you ovulate an egg once a month and you practice good timing when you have s_x (in accordance with your ovulation time) nature still does not promise a pregnancy. This being said, take your cycle and find out when you ovulate. Have s_x in the five days before it and one day after but, don't do it all day as a man's sperm need some time to rebuild their numbers. Sperm also take anywhere from 12-48 hours to reach the egg which helps the chances of successful fertilization. They can also survive for several days so, even if you ovulate on a Monday, you can get pregnant from having s_x on Friday night! If you have a 28 day cycle, you usually ovulate on the 14th day of the cycle (14days after the first day of your last period) so have s_x on this day, the day after, as well as a couple of the days leading up to it. If you're on the pill, go off now and start taking prenatal pills (with folic acid-very important!) to prepare your body. It may take a few months or more but you shouldn't seek any sort of fertility counceling until a year has pa__sed (unless you have had surgery or disease in your past or your partners that may lead you to believe you have a problem already)

It can take a year, but it only took me 2 weeks. I went by an ovulation calendar that I was able to create on www.webmd.com and it told my most fertile days. They weren't kidding! I thought it would take at least several months to conceive. Nope, 2 weeks later I find out I am pregnant. It was great to not have to wait though. Good luck! ~21 weeks 1 day preg.~
