    I’ve been really curious about how this falls out.  Growing up I always assumed that I would have no problems getting pregnant.  My mom told me that she has gotten pregnant every time she didn’t use protection (best way to promote abstinance in a teenager, BTW!), family and friends never had problems, etc.  It wasn’t until just within the last year or so that I realized it’s not always as easy as it appears.  So now of course I’m afraid that we might have trouble with it when we get to that point.  It’s quite irrational but fears like that are rarely anything but.

    I have three children.  The first two times, I got pregnant the first month that I stopped taking birth control pills.  The third I conceived while on birth control, though I had missed several pills in a row.  I was over 30 for all three.

    I don’t know how typical that is.  This should be an interesting poll.

    I answered for my sister (I love polls, what can I say? lol). Anyways it took her about 3-4 months and she was 28 when she conceived.

    We actually weren’t trying, and everything happened naturally for us. We figured that if we got pregnant that we got pregnant, but if we didn’t we can always keep trying. 🙂 Of course, I am about to be a second time Mom. The first time I got pregnant now, that took a LOT of time. I am talking for probably 2 1/2 years.

    I wasn’t on any birth control for at least a year before we started to actually try and once we did we got lucky in month 2.

    I am commented based on my sister’s experience. She went off birth control and within a month was pregnant. But she had a miscarriage at around 8 weeks. It took her about 9 months after that to get pregnant again. She is 30 and due in November!

    I was 41 and conceived less than a month after we started TTC. I miscarried at 10 weeks, but then got pregnant again just under 3 months later. 21 weeks now and everything looking good!
