What are the odds of getting pregnant?

ANSWER

For most couples trying to get pregnant, the odds are 15% to 25% in any one month. Some things can affect your chances:

  • After you reach 30, your chances get lower as you age.
  • Irregular menstrual cycles can make it hard to know the ideal time to have sex.
  • The less often you have sex, the less likely you are to get pregnant.
  • If you haven't gotten pregnant after one year of trying to conceive, your chances may be lower. Talk to your doctor about tests.
  • Some medical conditions can affect fertility.
