How Long Should It Take To Conceive?

Dear Midwife,
My husband and I have been trying for the past two months to get pregnant. Last month we had sex at least once a day and I am still not pregnant. Is this normal?


Well, it may be luck of the draw, or one of you may have a problem. Are you sure you are ovulating? Has his sperm been checked? How old are you both? If you are over 35, testing may be in order. If you are younger, I wouldn't worry before six months.
