    I think you can be TTC (Try To Conceive) and not be charting, taking temps/OPKs, checking cervix, etc etc.

    This is our 7th cycle of TTC but first month of taking temps and using OPKs.

    And what I was doing before is BDing around my fertile period. 😀

    From what I understand BD= baby dancing. If not, it works anyway.

    @regberadaisy: Ditto. We just did a whole lot of BDing around when I thought I was fertile. Worked for us.

    We have been TTC for awhile, but only using OPKs for 2 months.  I don’t temp.  I still think that means we are TTC!  I just think there are variations of how much you are monitoring.

    @winniewolf:

    Agreed.

    Some choose to start by charting for months beforehand and temping. And doing OPKs, checking cervix, etc etc.

    We chose to start by knowing when I was fertile and BDing every other day (as recommended) around then. Just trying to go au naturale.

    Which obvs did not help us! So now we are OPK and temping.

    Some people can do ALL that and not get pregnant in a year. Some can be NTNT and get pregnant the first cycle.

    Who knows!

    We’re NTNT, but I’m charting and keeping track of cervical fluids because I want to know when my fertile days are. This is my first time being off the pill (week three!) in six years, and before that I never ever had a normal cycle that I know of…I just never paid attention. Now I am, and more than anything I’m just excited to get to know my body better and in a more…womanly fashion I suppose.

    I must admit, I dont really get the difference between TTC and NTNT, surely if you make a conscious decision not to use any contraception then you are TTC.

    I always thought that NTNT means (pull it out and) see what happens while TTC is more of a conscious effort to BD during your fertile days.

    We are NTNT, getting ready to TTC soon.

    I think NTNT means that you’re really not paying attention and having intercourse whenever, if you get pregant–great, if you don’t–that’s okay.  Actively trying is trying intending to get pregnant whether you or not you use charting and all that it entails.

    Hmmm, we’re NTNT but I’m charting (only temps) at the same time because I have PCOS and need to know if I’m ovulating or not… It’s more to detect that than to figure out my fertile days. So, somewhere in the middle!

    @PrncssDva:  I know this sounds weird but it’s kind of a state of your mind.  Like I really hope I get pregnant versus I’m okay if I don’t get pregnant right now.  I see TTC as something that’s being actively done.  I don’t think, though, having sex outside of the fertile window disallows TTC.  It’s what YOU feel you’re doing.  Personally, I’d call it not trying/not avoiding instead of not trying not to.  Like MissMaine, I’ll be doing cervical checks and tempinng when we start our marriage but I’m going to call it NTNT in the first 6 months since it won’t be my absolute intent when I have sex to get pregnant if that makes sense.
