    Do you mean for Bees that have charted, tempted, etc. or do mean for those that just went off of BC?

    Mine was unintentional, so it took one try, literally, haha. My family is super fertile, and I have never heard of any of us “trying”. We mostly try not to since it seems we can just think about it and get pregnant.

    @loveroflove:  It depends on your situation and fertility, I suppose. This is month 17 for us and we’re now moving to IVF.

    13 months, with a chemical pregnancy around 5 months and a miscarriage around 10 months. I’m 22 weeks along now after getting pregnant a third time during Cycle 13.

    With my first pregnancy, which ended in a miscarriage after only 4 weeks, we had been trying for just 2 months (that was with my ex-husband).  My fiance and I are currently TTC and have been trying for about 6 months with no luck.  ๐Ÿ™

    We are hoping that once we get settled into our new house and after the wedding (6 WEEKS AWAY!) that God will say “Now is the time!”

    from the day I got off of BC to the day I found out I was pregnant was about 8 months. For 6 months of that I wasn’t even ovulating (pretty sure BC wasn’t 100% out of my system). For the other 2 months I was taking suppliments to grow my uterine lining because doctor said mine was too thin to ever be capable of nesting an egg. So, a total of 8 months later we were set and I got pregnant! Now that I look back on the journey—I don’t know why I was so upset the whole time. It most always takes awhile for BC to exit your system and for your reproductive systems to regulate themselves. But, we never stopped BDing or taking HPTs just because it was too soon–I def gave it my all to get pregnant each and every month…even though I had little hope (I was on BC for 5 years before that). 

    Edit: I’m 23

    I wasn’t taking any birth control but we tried for about a year, we started November 2009 and on November 2010 i was pregnant, found out december 22nd 2010 so that was our christmas gift..thinking about it didn’t help as soon as i stopped thinking about it because of stress and other things back in October and November 2010 i guess thats when things went smoothly:)
