Hello and welcome the healthcare magic. Fertility issues can be male or female related. Infertility is defined as the failure to conceive after one year of unprotected sexual intercourse and occurs in 10 to 15 % of couples in the reproductive age groups.
In terms of female issues, once the woman has normal regular periods with no known gynaecologial problems then there should be no problem getting pregnant: pregnancy occurs when then egg is released from the ovary , travels along the fallopian tube to implant in the womb or uterus, meets sperm to form the fetus and the fetus stays in the womb till it is viable. Anything that affects this, from the release of the egg to the meeting of the sperm would affect the possibiltity of pregnancy.
Male and female factors each account for about 35% of fertility issues.
Female factors can be divided into cervical ( like blockage of the cervix or problems with the interaction between the sperm and the cervical mucus), uterurs problems, problems with ovary, tubes. Stress is also thought to impact on pregnancy.
Male factors can be divided into (1) pretesticular ( before reaching the testes) : anything affecting the areas that send messages to the testes about the release of testosterone, (2) testicular - anything that causes the testes not to work properly or (3) post testicular which is related to the transport of the sperm

All these facts aside if you are both relatively well with no known severe illness then you should have no problem conceiving, congrats in advance.
