    I was never NTNT, but if that approach makes you more comfortable, why don’t you set a timeline that you are comfortable with – i.e., we will just have fun and see what happens for 6 months, and if I am not KU by then, I will look to into charting, etc.?

    I voted yes, but in all fairness I was tracking my cycles. No temping or any of that stuff but I knew when I was ovulating, etc.  I had been tracking to make sure I wouldn’t have my period for our wedding.  We started TTC or NTNT on our honeymoon, which was also when I happened to be ovulating.  No dice the first cycle, second cycle I did push a little for BD’ing when we were in the window and the third cycle we ignored everything, went out, got tipsy, came home and made our baby.  So while we had a mix of both, we definitely conceived while NTNT.  Good luck!

    we were NTNT for the first couple months but then moved on to activily ttc. at this time I also started charting/temping/using OPK’s etc. we’re in cyle 10 now and still not pregnant. looking back i’m really glad i picked up charting so quickly. it gives me a lot of usefull information.

    please keep in mind that once you start charting it will take a few cycles (1-3 maybe)until you know the rules, what to look for, know your body and see your patterns.  

    good luck!

    I came of bc in August (Depo Provera) so had very, very low expectations in terms of how soon it would take to see a period. First one came in October and we were definitely NTNT, but still knew we wanted to take a few cycles to let everything iron out. November AF came, then December’s came and I remember hoping it didn’t. Those cycles were like clockwork (I had expected irregularity) and so I did some reading about ovulation and TTC and we were definitely preggo over Christmas. That one didn’t stick and we lost that pregnancy early January. I am currently pregnant again. So….yes…..NTNT has gotten us two BFP’s, it’s just a matter of a sticky one!

    I said to Darling Husband if we go a year are not preggo we would see our doctor about it, and we put no pressure on ourselves, I just got a little hopeful that time in December and it was really hard to kick it moving forward!

    I got pregnant by accident, I was casually charting but obviously I was slightly off because we got pregnant a few months before we were going to TTC.

    I figured I would have a hard time getting pregnant, so we used BC sporadically for 7 mos. before diving in to fully TTC. It’s been 1 year, 10 mos. since I was on the ring.

    We got pregnant our first day of NTNT, so yes, it worked way better than we thought it would.

    Like chrispygal, we were officially NTNT but I was aware of my cycles. I was also taking folic acid and trying to eat more fertility-friendly foods. I wasn’t charting or temping. I might call it informed NTNT. FWIW, my BFP (on cycle 2) was a little bit of a surprise because I didn’t notice any signs of ovulation when I expected them to be there.
