How to get pregnant Reduced fertility
If you are not pregnant after 12 months, it is good to talk to your doctor. It is also recommended for couples where the woman is 35 years old or older and who have failed to conceive after 6 months of actively trying for a baby. This is not only for couples who do not have children yet, but also for couples who want a second or third child, but do not succeed.
You are not alone

- 25% will go to visit their GP because they cannot conceive

- 6% have fewer children than they would have liked
