My fiance and I are trying to conceive. I had the mirena taken out in February, and we havent gotten pregnant yet. This is my second time with the mirena. The last time I took it out in sep 2008 and I was pregnant oct 2008. Then i got it back until nov 2010, we conceived on my fiances birthday april 20 2011. Our youngest is 15m. Could something be wrong with one of us? Should we both get checked? Now after my last daughter my cycle is 26 days apart and before they were 28. I have had 2 normal periods and just started my third. Its hell seeing it when your trying to get pregnant. Could meds for strep throat interfere? I have 3 kids from my previous marriage and my fiance and I have one together. Im so confused. What should we do any? Will it take five months again.

@jazzyblue352: Try taking Vitamin B6. If your cycle lost 2 days maybe they were luteal phase (LP) days and taking B6 will help extend your LP and make it more likely to conceive.

I hate for this to come off the wrong way, but you should consider yourself very lucky on the past pregnancies. Each month you only have a 20% chance of getting pregnant (that’s if everything is working properly) and it sometimes takes time to get pregnant. I don’t think anything is wrong with you or your Darling Husband, your body is just adjusting again.
It just took me 7 cycles to get PG, while others get PG on their 1st cycle.
I also second the B6 to lengthen the cycle, I’ve been taking it all along. I’ve gone from a 7-day luteal phase to a 10-day to pregnant.

women don’t always get pregnant right away. sometimes, for whatever reason, it takes awhile. it sucks but it’s true. i know women who have been trying for a almost a year and still nothing. it doesn’t mean there’s anything wrong with you. you could also be missing your fertile window. if you’re not having sex in your fertile window then you will not get pregnant. there are only about 4-5 days per cycle where you can get pregnant. if you want to be more proactive, i suggest charting your cycles. it’s pretty easy and takes less than a minute everyday. i take my temperature every morning and record it on fertility friend. some women do temps along with checking cervical mucous or cervix placement. if you’re interested then check out fertilityfriend.com. it has tons of info.

I got pregnant on the 3rd cycle trying and I thought that was a SUPER short time to be TTC! I think the “rule of thumb” is after 6 months-12 months of having A LOT of sex (like at least 3-4 times a week) you aren’t pregnant, then you can maybe go see a doctor. TTC process does feel like it takes forever, though, but hang in there. You have nothing to get worried about after only 2 unsuccessful months.

Thanks alot everyone for the advice. I didnt mean to offend anyone if I did. But I just got worried, eespecially since my cycle days are shorter. Im definitely gonna take your advice. because this is our last go around. So we are praying for twins cause im getting my tubes tied after this pregnancy.

I agree with others here, pregnancy doesnt come easy for most esp after using hormonal birth control.
