    Well…first you need to have a sit down talk with your husband. It’s not going to happen if he doesn’t “finish” in you. It sounds like you may have some issues, but without comminting yourselves to fully trying, you can’t be sure. There’s been many women get pregnant with 40, 50, or even 100 day cycles, so I wouldn’t worry too much but you need to give it 100%. So 1st talk with your husband, if he doesn’t want another child, you need to make a decision on what’s more important to you – your husband or having children. *hugs*

    @Yellow.Clover:  +1 to talking it out, first and foremost. My link above was to show some success  🙂

    My cycles rotate one long, one short.  Plus, you have only TTC three individual months out of three years; your chances of getting pregnant in those short time frames is impossible for many ladies.  Yes, accidents happen but they are really only a small percentage and many ladies go months or even years with the pull out method before showing up pregnant.

    Otherwise, it sounds to me like he isn’t really committed to having a child right now.  You say that you stop TTC when he is broody?  How is that going to work while you’re pregnant?  Once the baby comes and you are raising a child together?  If he’s not finsihing his business inside of you, your chances of getting pregnant drop significantly and hoping for an accidental pregnancy sounds kind of scary because it seems like you’re not really committed to TTC right now.

    Maybe it’s time to have a serious discussion about TTC.  He obviously knows how a child is conceived since he already has a son and he is choosing not to TTC every time he pulls out.

    ***I will say that your story sounds exactly like my first marriage.  My ex husband was 8 years older and had a school age daughter.  He initially told me he wanted to have more children and he was a great father to his daughter so we got married.  After the wedding, he changed his mind but it took two years of marriage for him to tell me he didn’t want any more children.  The broody behavior also sounds familiar because that fits my ex to a T.

    As PPs have said I really think you should sit down and talk to your DH about this first and foremost. But,that said, my cycles changed from an average 28-30ish days, and jumped up to a random 50 plus day cycle. Have you seen your doctor yet? My GP told me anything over 45 days is considered “abnormal” so first things I would do is go to your doctor,and they can give you more information.

    NB:I was diagnosed with PCOS, and was also on acne medication as a teen but this “could” be related but also could be just coincedence(sp?)

    I have heard Vitex helps with regulating cycles.
