Trying to Conceive? Here’s a Realistic Timeline.

 Let’s Talk Facts:

You and your partner decide the time is right to have a baby. Yay! An exciting and overwhelming decision, it’s natural to want to conceive instantly after years of trying to avoid it. Many women overlook the impracticality of their expectation, assuming it will happen within the first month of trying. Scientific data proves it may not be so realistic to place that pressure on your body. So how long does it take to conceive, really? A study published in the journal Human Reproduction broke down 346 women actively trying to conceive at their most fertile points in their cycles. The good news? Within the first year, 310 of the 346 conceived.*

The results:

  • 38% became pregnant after 1 month
  • 68% became pregnant after 3 months
  • 81% became pregnant after 6 months
  • 92% became pregnant after 12 months

It’s important to recognize you do not need to see a fertility specialist before actively trying to conceive for one year. These results prove the average time it takes to conceive is 6 cycles, or 6 months. If you have PCOS this may be a different story, but there are still many natural methods you can take to ensure your body is at it’s optimal working state to conceive.

This study emphasizes results will not always be immediate. Women are placing the pressure on themselves to become pregnant right away while their bodies are telling them something entirely different. It is vital to prepare your body not just to carry a baby, but also recognizing the step before that. You must also prepare to conceive by increasing your egg quality and fertility as much as possible.
