FI and I were planning to wait another 3 months before TTC but had a bit of a sloppy night last week. I’m pretty sure it was in my fertility window. Honestly I’d be happy either way. We both really want a baby, we were just planning on waiting till after the wedding to start trying. Lol.
So since I’m going crazy with waiting, just curious how soon all of you got your BFPs after pulling the goalie?

I came off BC in December and I was horribly sick so we didn’t even try much. January was our lucky month. So 2 cycles.

We started trying in March and got my positive in April. I thought it would take longer after coming off birth control but…nope.

MechEBee: sounds like me this time last year! We DTD June 9 and I got a BFP June 22nd (the day my period was due). I’m sure had I tested a few days before that those two lines would hve been there. Good luck!

i have been off BC since September and no BFP yet. Not everyone is that lucky.

We were VERY lucky……1 cycle! I have been on BC for years and figured I’d need several months to regulate again and hopefully no issues (Im 33). We planned on TTC starting june/july and I went off the pill in April. I had a 40 day cycle going into may and we were not TTC during that time. I got my first period May 15th and my plan was to BD every second day starting like…4-5 days after my period stopped until I got my temp spike…maybe one or 2 after just for good measure lol.
Sure enough I spiked on June 2nd but didnt have a lot of other signs (I didnt get a lot of CM) and on 9DPO I randomly tested for fun and I got my first BFP….I tested again a like 6 times over the next few days (up until this past friday) and all positive. Just went in to have my blood drawn today 😀
Now I just have to pray its a ***sticky baby*** so far so good

We were not TTC (yet). But I went off my BCP a few months before our wedding and got pregnant a few weeks later. It could be the first month or it could take awhile…you really never know. I was on BCP for a long long time.

I was on BCP for about 11 years. Stopped taking it at the end of Nov. Used condoms in Dec. Pregnant in January. The women in my family are pretty fertile, so I say genetics had a hand, but I also think I had a boost from having just stopped taking BCP. It can create crazy cycles for some women, but can also act as a fertility booster for others who start TTC right after coming off it. Obviously I can’t compare it to another experience, but I wonder if I had waited longer to regulate if I would have conceived so quickly. We were very lucky and thankful for it. Currently 23 weeks.

I know everyone is different. I was just mostly curious how many people actually got pregnant on their first cycle… Trying to figure out my “odds.” My mother was very fertile, but I know that doesn’t really mean everything either. Not really getting my hopes up one way or another. Just passing the time. 🙂 Congrats to all you expectant mothers out there! So exciting.
