    @Lillyrose:  I’m 29 and I’ve been trying for six cycles already (with fertility monitor, temping etc). Blood tests and ultrasound done, and no real issues so far, apart from being a bit on the skinny side of normal. DH has his SA next week, so we’ll see if there’s an issue there. Otherwise, just have to keep trying and wait it out, which is super frustrating. Hope you have better luck once you do start ttc 🙂

    I’m 29, it took us 7 cycles. I had a short LP (which I worked on) and fell pregnant in April.  I’m 15w3d now 🙂

    I’m 28 and I charted the entire time TTC.  The first time took us 5 cycles, but the first couple were pretty screwy since I was coming off BC.  Unfortunately we miscarried that pregnancy, but we got pregnant again the very next cycle we tried so that was only 1 cycle (I continued to chart after the miscarriage and had I not been charting that cycle I think we would have missed my fertile window.  It came way earlier than it ever had before (probably due to the recent miscarriage) and caught me off guard but I was charting CM and knew I was fertile.  I am now 14 weeks along.  I voted twice in your poll.  Good luck when you start TTC, I highly recommend charting, I think it works great!

    26 and also our 2nd cycle but it ended in a early MC.  1st cycle we didn’t chart/temp but I quickly realized that I wanted to.  Tempted with the 2nd cycle and loved how clear it was to see when I O’d.  Will definitely temp/chart again once we start TTC again (hopefully next month!).

    I turned 30 the week I got my BFP. Took us 12 cycles. We temped and charted, it was also our second round of Clomid.

    ETA: I am 9w1d today.

    I guess it is different for everyone. We got pregnant while not even actively trying. I had been charting my ovulation cycle for years because I hadnt been on birth control. I got on BC in March and it threw my cycle off so 2 months later before my BC was working properly, I got a BFP and ovulated a good two weeks ahead of schedule. I got on BC because of my anxiety and the new medications I was prescribed are not good for babies.. I didnt want any surprises. LOL God works in mysterious ways Wink

    I temped and charted before actively TTC but not during. Didn’t want to drive myself crazy. There may have been some charts and thermometers involved, haha, but I consider myself having done it without it. First cycle.

    I’m 25, on cycle #7 (charted all 7 cycles), and still haven’t gotten my BFP.  So I didn’t vote.
