For some women, conception and fertility can be as simple as discontinuing contraception, but for many others getting pregnant can take a while. A healthy couple has only about a 25 percent chance of conceiving during each cycle. Only 75 to 85 percent of all couples achieve conception within the first year of trying. It takes time. Increasing fertility and awareness of fertility are a big part of successful conception.
