34 when we started.  Took us 11 months, but it was actually only 7 or 8 cycles because my period got super irregular after I took out the paraguard and then went missing for 3 months.  

I always said 2 was my min and max, but now that I’m actually preggers with my first, I think we’ll see how we feel after I give birth.

MrsBtoBe14 :  I am 32, it took up 14 cycles to get pregnant, my Darling Husband is 36. I am currently just shy of 6 weeks. I had some issues with my thyroid which were detected after 6 months of trying, and took another 3 or so months to sort out. I was temping, using OPKs. My Darling Husband would like 3, I think 2 kids. We will see since it took us so long the first time. Also I likely had a chemical pregnancy last April and June.

Exactly a year from when we started but probably around 7 cycles of full-on trying as I had to skip a few due to endometriosis surgery.

dreamreve1 :  NTPT on these boards is usually not trying, not preventing.

Iʻm “young”, 27, and have been off the pill and TTC for about 18 months so you never know!

danakxox :  Man, this is kind of worrying. Originally we wanted to start trying right after the wedding, but decided to wait one more year to save money (so I’d be 28). Now I’m starting to think we should try earlier and suffer through bring a little extra broke at first/putting off buying a house.

moissamight :  obviously only you two will know whatʻs right but if I could go back I would have gotten off the pill much earlier and just used condoms to let my body begin to regulate itself naturally. I was on it for 11yrs and Iʻm still irregular with lining issues 18 months later off of it. BUT feritlity is a crapshoot in every way, some women get pregnant right off the pill with no problems.

10 months, one severe infertility diagnosis (DOR, basically pre-menopausal at 36), one failed IVF after which I switched clinics.  Surprise pregnancy while waiting to start IVF at my new clinic.  Surprise pregnancy is now 7.5 months old and we’re not preventing pregnancy but I’m still breastfeeding and exhausted, so probably not very fertile (even if I were fertile at baseline) and too exhausted to really “try.”  We want two kids, but I’m just so incredibly grateful for the one we have.

MrsBtoBe14 :  ooohh then iʻd highly consider stopping earlier, Bee :/ My cycles are still super irregular. I didnʻt even ovulate until CD30 this month. I try to stay pretty active on the infertiity TTC threads but life happens sometimes.
