I had that fear too. It took us two months.

Now I'm afraid of secondary infertility. LOL It never ends...

My reasoning for trying when we did was...

Averages are only OK if you are the average or below it!!

I wanted kids before I was 35. If we struggled to get pregnant the NHS won't see you before you've been trying for 12 months. So that's a year. Then add on how long it can take to work out what's going on... You could be looking at 2, 3, maybe more years to conceive.

There IS NEVER A RIGHT TIME. Whose to say to you won't be in a worse off place in a year or 2?!

Your fertility tends to decline as you age, I'd been diagnosed with a cyst....

Ultimately it took us 10 months of sort of trying.

My advice would be if you want it, things are ok/you'd survive (no major devastating issues) then do it!!

This. Having been through infertility, and seeing my sister go through it... it's never too early to get started IMO.

Infertility is definitely a real fear- I know I had that fear until we conceived. If we didn't get pregnant on our own by the time I turned 30, we planned on going to a specialist. Luckily, it only took us 4 months. I'm also afraid of secondary infertility now! We don't want another baby for at least 2-3 years (and now I'm thinking it may be better to space them out even further- maybe 6 or 7 years apart), and I hope I won't have any issues getting pregnant.
