    How long should women try to get pregnant before calling their doctor?

    Most experts suggest at least one year for women younger than age 35. However, women aged 35 years or older should see a health care provider after 6 months of trying unsuccessfully. A woman’s chances of having a baby decrease rapidly every year after the age of 30.
    Some health problems also increase the risk of infertility, so women should talk to a health care provider if they have
    • Irregular periods or no menstrual periods.
    • Very painful periods.
    • Endometriosis.
    • Pelvic inflammatory disease.
    • More than one miscarriage.
    It is a good idea for any woman and her partner to talk to a health care provider before trying to get pregnant. They can help a woman prepare her body for carrying a pregnancy and delivering a healthy baby, and can also answer questions on fertility and give tips on conceiving.
