Hi!
If you were my patient, I would advise you to slow down and enjoy the ones you have for moment! Most doctors don't get too worried about infertility with their patients unless they have been trying for a year.  This is because--you are correct--you and your partner are  probably both fertile and it is probably just going to take a little more time for you to conceive for whatever reason.
Certainly in the meantime it is a good idea to do all of the health concious things that we all should do anyway--quit smoking, lose weight, exercise regularly, take multivitamins containing folate, etc.
Hope this helps!
Dr B

Try using ovulation predictor kits. They will help you determine your best days for TTC.
Good luck!
