Difficulty conceiving

We didn't think it would be like this.

You and your partner have been trying to conceive for a while now - without success. Now what do you do?

If you are having difficulty conceiving, the most important step you can take is to see a health care provider or a fertility specialist. Find a fertility clinic near you. If you have concerns at any time about your fertility, you should talk to your health care provider right away.

In general, infertility is defined as being unable to conceive after a year of regular, unprotected intercourse if a woman is under age 35 (6 months if a woman's age is 35 or older).

Seek help (use the fertility clinic locator to find a fertility clinic near you) if:

  • you are under 35 and unable to conceive after a year of regular, unprotected intercourse
  • you are 35 to 37 and unable to conceive after 6 months of regular, unprotected intercourse
  • you are over 37 (women over 37 do not need to wait 6 months before seeing a doctor because waiting too long to seek help could harm their chances of conceiving)3
