Unfortunately although it takes on average a year for most couples to get pregnant, there's no way of knowing how long it will take or why it takes some couples longer. Are you in the UK? If so you can see your doctor once you have been trying unsuccessfully for a year and they will run some tests.
Good luck xx
Enjoying the TTC ride!

At 18 they might want you to try for 2yrs as almost all couples without fertility issues will have conceived at the end of 2 yrs of trying every month, by trying they mean regular sex around the right time of month to conceive .
It's not really fair but they won't offer IVF etc. under a certain age even if you have issues so I suppose that makes them think there's no point rushing the testing
Have you checked that timing isn't the issue by using ovulation tests, sometimes it really is as simple as not having been having sex at the right time to get pregnant as a lot of women don't ovulate when they think they do, also the tests can show up what doctors call a luteal phase deficiency, which means the time between ovulation and when your period arrives isn't long enough for the fertilised egg to implant , anything less than 10 days is considered too short . If you found this was a problem then you could go back to your docs and ask for help with that, or if you discovered you aren't ovulating they can also help with that whatever your age xx
