    We have been actively trying since March and are still going (& we were not preventing for 2 months before that)..so sort of TTC for 6 months now.

    @apex:  It took us 1 cycle but I know that is not the norm. I was off BC for 2 years at that point and before trying we were using POM method. I used OPK’s and also already knew how long my cycles usually were. DH is 39 and I am 23 so we were worried about his age and fertility but had no problems getting pregnant. I am now 25 weeks and due in October.

    @apex:  We got pregnant our first cycle trying, but lost it. We are now in our third cycle since, so I guess a total of four cycles and still BDing? I have been temping, just started using OPKs this cycle.

    You might like to put a 12months+ option in, too.

    We got our BFP on the 3rd cycle TTC.  I was sort of charting, but gave up temping after a month since it stressed me out.  I mostly just looked for other signs of O and used a few OPKs.  Glad I did that since I have long cycles (like 45 days!) and it was hard to pinpoint O.

    We ended up pregnant after my 2nd cycle. However, my first cycle off the pill lasted 100 days and the 2nd cycle was 40+ days. I was charting, but with my irregular cycle lengths we had no idea about timing & were very surprised!
