A new study suggests that couples should not give up their attempts of getting pregnant as a successful conception usually takes one to two years from the time couples decide to start a family.

A study by the women's health brand Balance Activ, surveyed 2,000 women in Britain, about their knowledge of conception. They were misinformed when it came to how long and how demanding becoming pregnant can be, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

A mere 15 percent could identify the correct time frame, which is one to two years, while a shocking 43 percent expected to conceive within six months -- 12 percent of them even said three months.

This ill-informed expectation to conceive sooner can often lead to stress and anxiety in women.

"Deciding to try for a baby can be an intense time for couples. The fact that women are choosing to have children later on in life, combined with an expectation that conception will happen within weeks can also add stress and anxiety to the mix, which in turn can lead to its own problems," said Corrin Farr, senior marketing manager at Balance Activ.
