19 months for us. I was 24 and Darling Husband was 28 at the time we started. We began very casual, then gradually moved to temping and OPKs as it took longer and longer. We actually started the infertility process, and had Darling Husband do a semen analysis and got our results back that he Had better than average numbers. I was so upset that it was “my fault”. Two weeks later we got our first BFP and im now 32 weeks 🙂
I wonder if my working nights had something to do with it (even though I know I ovulated regularly and got enough sleep). In the end I’m glad it took us a while, we got into a better place than when we started and I get THIS baby. Who was meant for us 🙂

I was 26 and not trying at all. In fact I was taking progesterone only oral contraception. My boyfriend and I (now my fiance) had actually only been together for two months, so I guess thats how long it took us? Our only “technique” would be a crazy amount of honeymoon period sex. Unfortunately it was ectopic though, which is a risk of getting pregnant on that type of contraception, and why i am very anti it now, unless its the sort that actually prevents ovulation (which is much more effective). The wonderful New Zealand government however does not fund the more effective progesterone only pill, so I was prescibed the one that failed and ultimately almost killed me. If Id known I would have paid for the other one myself.

Took about 19 months. Had one miscarriage in there. I was 31 when I conceived my DS and he is almost 2.

- Wedding: May 2012 - El Faro Convention center, Aguadilla, Puerto Rico
I had been using temps/charting to avoid pregnancy for over a year so I was very familiar with my cycle. We concieved our first cycle trying but it ended in an early miscarriage. 2 cycles, later I was pregnant again and I’m due in May with a baby boy.
From starting TTC to sticky baby – 4 months, we are 26/27 and we used everything temps, charting and OPKs.

No, but I did start taking prenatals on month 5 because a friend told me it really helped her conceive. We got lukcy that month, so maybe there was something to it.

I started 18 months ago, at 28 ( Darling Husband 28 as well). Used tempting, OPKs, ferning for a while, preseed, millions of supplements, three rounds of clomid and timed intercourse, one IUI, and in second round of IVF, and still waiting. Hoping it will happen easier for you 🙂

Honestly, the two times my ex husband ejaculated in me, I was pregnant so I will say I got pregnant immediately.In fact, I was on something with my daughter so I feel as if it’s super easy for me so I have to be very careful.
I was 30 when I had my first.I just turned 38.

How long did it take you?: March we started trying, got a positive in October. 9 cycles.
What was your age at the time?: 26-27. My husband was 25-26. We will both be 27 when baby is born this summer.
Did you use any techniques? (temping, OPKs, etc): Oh yes. About everything…. Charting, tempting, OPKs, BDing during fertile window, read TCOYF, used Pre-Seed, tried accupuncture, changed diet and all kinds of stuff. It took two rounds of Femara/Letrozole to get a positive test. 🙂
