    I went off BC in June when we wanted to start trying, and got pregnant at the end of November, so 6 months. I had also read taking charge of your fertility, and was tracking my periods but that was it. In November, I started using OPK’s and then we got pregnant right away.

    LeonardLady:  Good thread! We haven’t started TTC yet (Wedding in November), but I am interested to see the results. I’m also on NuvaRing!

    I stopped taking BCP in early Sept in preparation for TTC in a few months. I got pregnant in late Nov. We avoided the fertile window in Sept and Oct, so that was our first shot.

    Do NOT use regular lube. It will kill the sperm. Use nothing or a TTC-friendly lube.

    And if you check out the charts on FF, the average length of time if takes people to get pregnant (people who are charting and know exactly when they ovulate) is 7 months. So don’t get too disapointed if it doesn’t happen immediately.

    Best of luck!

    And I was on NuvaRing before we TTC too. My cycle regulated immediately. But I miss the NuvaRing dearly! My periods are horrible without it!

    Hormones do not stay in your system that long- they should be out something like 3 or 4 days?  I went off before we really wanted to get pregnant but I got pregnant immediately.  It really is a crapshoot- hard to tell what you will get.  Some regulate right away and others take awhile.
