You May Be Ready for Baby, but Is Your Body?
Dr. Kirstiaan Nevin is an obstetrician/gynecologist with Reiter, Hill, Johnson and Nevin in Washington, D.C., and sees a lot of women who have difficulty conceiving. She says the best natural fertility rate for women is about 20 percent in each monthly cycle. For women under the age of 35, it can take as long as a year to get pregnant. But, she says, women 35 or older who haven't gotten pregnant after about six months should probably see a doctor. There are a few things women who want to conceive should keep in mind before they start trying.
