Thanks

If they are regular then most probably you are ovulating - so clomid will not be needed.

You can have a blood tests at day 21 to confirm this.

90% of couples conceive after 12 months of regular unprotected intercourse.

By 6 months the figure is 65-70% - so not being pregnant at 6 months is certainly not an indicator that you will not become pregnant.

Most fertility specialists would agree that it is appropriate to let a couple try for 12 months before arranging any investigations - when they do the first test to arrange is a sperm count.
