One to two years average time to get pregnant: Study

London, Nov 3 : Usually women lose patience within just six months from the time they decide to start a family. But they shouldn't be impatient as a couple takes one to two years to conceive, reveals a study.


A study by the women's health brand Balance Activ, surveyed 2,000 women in Britain, about their knowledge of conception. They were misinformed when it came to how long and how demanding becoming pregnant can be, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

A mere 15 percent could identify the correct time frame, which is one to two years, while a shocking 43 percent expected to conceive within six months -- 12 percent of them even said three months.

This ill-informed expectation to conceive sooner can often lead to stress and anxiety in women.

"Deciding to try for a baby can be an intense time for couples. The fact that women are choosing to have children later on in life, combined with an expectation that conception will happen within weeks can also add stress and anxiety to the mix, which in turn can lead to its own problems," said Corrin Farr, senior marketing manager at Balance Activ.
