@brideatbeach:  Your poll doesn’t have any options! I stopped the pill over a year before we started trying. We weren’t careful for two months without a pregnancy and the first month we really tried we were pregnant

I’m 23 & DH is 27; We conceived on our 1st cycle, miscarried then conceived again on our 2nd cycle (23 days later). I’m now 26 weeks & counting. So… I got pregnant 100% of the time.

I had the Paragard non-hormonal IUD taken out on July 2nd this year.  I ovulated on July 12th and BAM, hello baby!

Edit: I was 25 when we conceived and DH is 38. 🙂

I haven’t been on birth control since I was…..24 years old? I’m 32 now so it’s been a while! We are on our fourth month trying and I am hoping this is the month!

Off BCP for over three years. Took us two cycles of NTNP, and only the second did we BD around O, so I consider it one cycle :p I was 27 (just had a bday) and DH is 39. Baby is 18.5 weeks along, due March 25th!

@brideatbeach:  I was 26 when we got pregnant, DH was 29. I had never been on any type of birth control, and I got pregnant the first time DH didn’t pull out.

DH and I are both 25 and I stopped BC a few years before our wedding. We got pregnant on our second cycle NTNP. I wasn’t charting or tempting. Just stopped preventing.  I miscarried at 11 weeks sadly but we’re going to start trying again soon.
