Does anyone have a link to a good study showing the average length of time it takes for healthy, fertile couples to get pregnant?

My husband and I have a four year old daughter and I have been ready for more children for a long long time. My husband still says no to another baby right now, and that he wants to think about it for another six months. Our daughter was a surprise baby when we were trying to avoid. I've explained to my husband that it may take some time to conceive but he does not believe me. I think it would be helpful if I could show him some stats (he asked for "proof" actually) Of course it may be that I conceive right away, you never can know....but anyway....does anyone know of a good study?

Thanks!

Sarah.

Midway through the 8th paragraph

Study from some German researchers. Gives you their findings on % at 1, 3, 6 and 12 months... Barely over half were pregnant by the third month.

My first was an oppsie--- my second took about 10mo on and off (I was also bf-ing). I think it is totally absolutly normal for it to take 6mo more/or less. My dh and I are totally healthy (and young!) when we had our first we were almost mid-twenties.
