    ceebee - I think you mentioned before that it's something like 20%? (I assume this is based on couple having no issues conceiving and actively trying IE - BD'ing around fertile time?)

    Is this right?

    PS: Google wasn't much help?

    I've read a similar statistic to that. It's equal parts reassuring and depressing, although iveno idea how accurate it actually is (sorry, I'm not much help!).

    Yeah, I think it's actually 15 - 25% depending on who you talk to (I saw a GP who said 15% to me, but a lot of other places seem to put it as higher). Think it's mentioned in the Great Sperm Race too (channel 4 documentary - if I remember rightly) - have you seen that?

    Found these couple of links which illustrate what I've just said:

    Hey nat, yeah its 20-25% chance each mnth that's for healthy couples, stats vary dependant upon age, weight etc, apparently we are infertile beings compared to animals...
