For women who are in their 30s and have never gotten pregnant, if you have trouble trying to conceive you might want to think about having a hysterosalpinogram. Officially, it’s a test that can be used to diagnose problems with your ovaries/fallopian tubes. Unofficially, it helps you conceive because it “clears out” the path to your ovaries/tubes. 

Kind of like your plumbing can get stuck/clogged after months and months of having your period (years!) and that helps clean it new. 

I had it done after 8 years without having any luck (although I was only *trying* for a year) and got pregnant the next month.

I’m 32, Dh is 29. We are currently 25 weeks pregnant with our first (and only) kiddo. It took us 8 months of actively trying to conceive. 

I charted/temped, hadn’t been on BC in years, timed intercourse each month, used Preseed, took evening primrose oil in the first half of each cycle, avoided caffeine, took prenatals, used Soft Cups after intercourse, Darling Husband stayed away from hot baths, tighty-whiteys…you name it. We did everything we could think of barring medical assistance and the first 7 months…zilch. The one month I’d given up and stopped all the active thinking and trying is the month it finally happened.

Go figure!  LOL

It’s so crazy how much everyone’s answers range…. it’s terrifying to not know if it will be the first month, or not after tons of trying and more invasive assistance.  Reading the answers reminded me that I came across a study recently that is researching factors that might influence getting pregnant.  It’s out of Boston University.  I bookmarked it to enroll when we are actually TTC… here’s the link if anyone is interested.  I am hoping that eventually they will figure out more answers for all of this!

I was 32 (now 33) and he was 28. We were not trying, not preventing and it took 3 months. Our beautiful son is 8 weeks old tomorrow.

Wow, I’ll echo pp’s in that it’s crazy to see such a range of experiences!

Darling Husband and I are both 32 and we have been TTC for 7 months…hoping it’ll come soon.  DH has Crohn’s disease for which he takes a monthly immunosuppressant injection (Humira), which so far research has not shown affects (male) fertility, but I’m skeptical.  Also skeptical how fertile he is having Crohn’s in the first place.

We’ll see – if I don’t get knocked up by the holidays we’re going to the doctor in January-ish.

I’m 31, we did the NTNP thing for 5 months…on the 6th month I used OPKa and got pregnant that cycle. I was willing to wait until it happened on its owb but with Darling Husband working two jobs and me spending most of my days and school an evenings on clinical rotation I knew it could take forever if we don’t give it an honest effort. 10 weeks along today, 8 weeks post graduation 🙂

Just shows it can be easy for us 30 something’s to conceive if we want to 🙂

I saw my midwife today and she said The time it took me to conceive was the average she sees in her practice, but a first try baby is possible too, so give it time!

If it makes you feel any better, the average age for first birth in the UK is now 30, so your 30s really is not that old! I know very, very few people who had children before they turned 30, and none of them are close family or friends.

I’m 32 and Darling Husband and I did it ONCE during my best guess at a fertile window and I got knocked up. I was kind of astonished since my cycles were all whacked out – seemed super lucky. Darling Husband thinks he just has super sperm. =P
