We are getting married next June, but want to start right away once we are married, or even start trying a few months before. I have had fertility issues since I was 16 and don’t want to wait until I am in my thirties and my fertility is already dropping. Works for some people, but Fiance and I want to be younger parents, so hopefully when we are 23/22.

We just got married a little more than a month ago, and I’m off BC, but we’re going to avoid for the first year. Then it’s free game! I’d like to have one before I’m 30, and that should give us enough time if we get pregnant within the first year of trying.

Prior to getting married, we agreed to wait a year. Then we got married, and moved across country 3 months later. We talked about it again a month ago, and have decided we both feel comfortable waiting 2 yrs. I’ll be 27 when we start trying. We are enjoying just being married, and feel it’s different than dating even though we’ve been together and lived together for 2yrs prior to getting married. Also, we want to enjoy our new city now that law school and the bar are done, me find a stable job as an attorney, and hopefully buy our first home in 2 years. I still want to run a marathon (have only done a half so far) before baby comes while I have time to just focus on me as selfish as that sounds! We’ve been married 5 months, and my baby fever has actually subsided greatly!

A year but then it took 18 months to get pregnant. I need the help of an RE. I waited too long too go to the RE.  We also probably should have started sooner given we married at 36 and I will  be 39 having this baby.
