    Went off Birth Control and used protection for 3 months, and then it took us three months

    I’m 25 and DH is 26. I went off BC in November and started charting right away. We were avoiding until February and we got pregnant the first cycle. I also used ovulation predictor strips. We were very fortunate to have gotten pregnant the first cycle, but it all depends on the couple. Good luck! And I didn’t read everyone’s posts but the book Take Charge of Your Fertility (TCOYF) is a great book, very informative, not just for TTC but also just understanding your body better.

    14 months and still trying. And that’s with charting, temping, OPKs, naturopathic supplements, etc etc.

    I’m 32 and DH will be 34 this July. I was 31 when we got pregnant on Cycle 3. We just miscarried at 20 weeks and have to wait 3 months before we can try again. HOpefully, it will be a quick time, just like before.

    I’ve never been on BC and am almost 26.  DH is 30. We’re both at healthy weights and have a fairly healthy lifestyle.  We’ll be starting our 12th cycle (just over 10 months) and still nothing…  I’ve been charting for 10 cycles, we’ve tried PreSeed, Instead Cups, dietary changes, and I’ve recently started acupuncture.  We’re hoping that God will bless us with the miracle that a baby is very soon!

    I went off the pill in July of 2011 but we didn’t plan on starting to try till January 2012. We skipped the protection one night on our honeymoon in December and i shockingly got knocked up. I am 34 now and I will be 35 when I am due, September 2nd. Miracle baby!

    28 years old – it took us a year.  Diagnosed with unexplained infertility.  I ovulated on my own every month, but my doctor suspects it was a weak ovulation because i would start spotting 8-9 dpo but that could have also been due to mild endometriosis because my progesterone levels always came back on the low side of normal, but still normal.  We tried Clomid and got pregnant on the 2nd cycle of Clomid (and while on vacation to get away from the stress of TTC and to “celebrate” starting our second year). 

    edit – i went off the pill about a year and 1/2 before we started trying.  My doctor actually said that perhaps I had been off for too long.

    Just shy of a year. I just turned 33 and DH is 35.  We had both female and male infertility factors. (I was diagnosed with a very low ovarian reserve, and DH was diagnosed with very low count & abnormal morphology)

    -oh forgot to add I was off the pill for about 3 years before TTC. Prior to that I was only on it for a few months and was off of it for about 3 years prior. (so 6 years with only taking it for a few months during that time)

    First try but I know we got really lucky. I was prepared for it to take 6 months.
