Infertility is usually defined as the inability to conceive after twelve months of sex without contraception. If you're over 35, doctors may consider you infertile if you haven't conceived after six months of sex without contraception. This is simply because women over 35 have fewer years of reproductive life remaining, so it's best if you don't wait another 6 months to seek help.

Infertility issues are surprisingly common. In fact, about one in six couples face difficulties in conceiving, yet most are unprepared for infertility. They may not realise that in many cases infertility can be overcome, even without resorting to assisted reproductive technologies like IVF. You may believe that you're infertile when in fact you're only sub-fertile. Or perhaps you simply don't have the correct information to identify the fertile time in your cycle.

Advice about timing sex to coincide with ovulation often makes all the difference. The Billings Ovulation Method™ teaches you to recognise your time of fertility to optimise your chances of conceiving. This simple information has helped many couples to become pregnant, including those who had been trying to conceive for more than two years or who had previously failed on IVF.
