How long does it usually take to get pregnant?

Many factors can affect the chances of a partner's conception, such as:

  1. Your age.
  2. Your overall health.
  3. reproductive health.
  4. how often you have sex.
  5. Some women get pregnant quickly, while others last longer, which can be annoying, but it's normal.


Most couples (approximately 84 out of 100) become pregnant within a year if they have regular sex and do not use contraception.

But women become less fertile as they age, One study found that among couples who have regular unprotected sex:

  1. 19-26 years - 92% become pregnant after 1 year and 98% after 2 years.
  2. between 35 and 39 - 82% become pregnant after 1 year and 90% after 2 years.

What does "normal sex" mean?

Regular sex means having sex every 2 or 3 days a month.

Some couples may try to have sex with the moment the woman ovulates (releasing an egg).

But the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) guide advises that this can be stressful and not recommended.
