    I stopped BC in April and we used the pull out method. On my second cycle off BC we got pregnant the one time he didn’t pull out.

    5 months / 5 cycles. We were definitely trying every one of those months, and it finally happened!

    It took us 12 cycles after coming off birth control. I was also on Clomid. No medical issues with either of us.

    it took us 15 cycles of actively trying, I was off birth control for 2 yrs.  I was also on Clomid as well, and neither of us had any medical issues either.

    I went of BCP in April & got PG our first month trying which was my 3rd cycle off BCP. We decided I’d go off the pill a few months before trying so I could chart & get a sense of my cycles. I also met with my OB for a pre-TTC apt/pap to make sure my lady bits looked alright.

    Got pregnant on the second try, ended in an early miscarriage.  Subsequently, I got pregnant on the fourth try.  I’m not quite 10 weeks along so not 100% certain yet if this one will stick but at least we made it past the first heartbeat scan this time!

    I love reading these threads. We’re on our second month/second cycle. Hoping the stars align sooner than later.

    I said right away but just answering for my second pregnancy.  I only used BC that time after my first and after I stopped BC we got pregnant pretty much right away… it ended in an ectopic though.  However after I was cleared to try again I was pregnant pretty soon after that.

    I was on BC for ~15 years and got pregnant during my second cycle after going off of it. Still early but hoping for the best! Smile
