You know, there are so many variables, it's REALLY hard to know. Age is one factor, but there are many other things that can influence your ability to conceive (low sperm count, delayed ovulation or no ovulation in a given cycle, endometriosis, PCOS, bad timing, medication, etc.).
For example, I have some friends who are young (she is 26 and he is 27). It took them 4 years to conceive. They have no medical problems that any doctor could identify, it just took them a long time to conceive. Mind you, that's not very common.
On the other hand, my mother conceived her last child without even trying. They were using birth control and she was 39 and my step-dad was 41. She never had problems conceiving at age 35, 37, or 39 and had healthy, term pregnancies each time.
It usually takes a healthy couple about 6 months to conceive, even if you know when you ovulated and timed DTD accordingly. You two aren't old enough that I would say you should be too worried about it unless you've been TTC for several months already. If you've been TTC for a while, it never hurts to call your doctors office and see if they would see you to make sure there's nothing causing problems getting pregnant.
HTH! Good luck!
