Think You Can't Get Pregnant? Try Again
Almost half of young women who said they'd been struggling to get pregnant for at least a year ended up having a baby despite not getting fertility treatment, according to a new study from Australia. That success rate was only slightly lower than in women who also reported trouble conceiving and opted for treatment with fertility hormones or in vitro fertilization (IVF). The current data is from about 1,400 women age 28 to 36 who reported on the most recent questionnaires that they'd tried unsuccessfully to get pregnant for at least a year at a time.
