I didn’t want to get wrapped up in charting and what not. We let nature take its course and 6 months later i became pregnant. I had an app that suggested the days i ovulated but it was WAY wrong. If i had charted and took my temp i would have known. I think if it was over a year of NTNP i would have taken things more seriously.

LilLis:  we used pull out method when I stopped BC. On my second cycle off bc my husband didn’t pull out one day and I got pregnant.

Plenty of people get pregnant without actively trying, you just don’t hear about it as often on these boards.

LilLis:  initially we were NTNP starting on our honeymoon at the end of May 2013 and found out I was pregnant just two months later. So it is possible and can happen fairly quickly.  I ended up miscarrying at 11 weeks which is when we switched to actively TTC.  I had been off birth control for years before that and we had used condoms prior to our honeymoon. It might take longer if you’re waiting for your cycles to regulate after coming off hormonal BCP.

We haven’t pulled BC just yet, but we’re planning to NTNP rather than charting, at least at first. Honestly, I’m kind of looking forward to the NTNP period, so I don’t really want to rush a pregnancy. But if we’ve been NTNP for a year, we’ll probably get more serious and start charting.

On average, it’s probably about 6 months to get pregnant while NTNP (the average for those timing things perfectly is about 3 months).

That said, I temped and charted for 10 cycles before I got pregnant. I thought it was never going to happen. I am glad that we DID from the start, though, as when we went in to the RE, we had tangible proof that I should have already gotten pregnant. It also showed a strong likelihood that I was ovulating and everything was normal.

However, for most folks, it’s not necessary.

I stopped bc in December 2012, started NTNP in June 2013, got pregnant in October. Unfortunately it ended in MC, but still, we got pregnant 5 months NTNP

We just decided to stop birth control and I used a free app to tell me when I should ovulate and when we should try…the app worked and I’m currently 8w pregnant.

We started NTNP in December of 2012 and got pregnant that same month. I also used an app to tell me when I **should be** ovulating.

Fluffmallow:  I think mine was called WomanLog Calendar. You just put in when AF comes and it gives you a estimation of when you should be ovulating

Fluffmallow:  I was using Lady Timer. It’s free and was super easy to use on my iphone.

I was NTNP/casually TTC (no opk’s, temping or charting… Just tracked AF on my phone). It took about 7 months, so accounting for one super long cycle, it was probably 6 cycles.
