Did You Get Pregnant the First Time You Had Sex?

It takes most couples a year (on average) to get pregnant - but there doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason for why it takes different women different amounts of time!

My most popular article on Couples Coping With Infertility is Why Can't I Get Pregnant? It lists four different "fertility checklists", to help couples identify the source of the problem (low sperm, irregular periods, etc).

I write so many articles on infertility and fertility treatments; I'd love to write one on how long it takes the "average" woman to get pregnant! Is it really a year of trying, or is that just a medical myth that keeps getting passed around?

So...how long did it take you to get pregnant - and do you have any tips for getting pregnant?
