  • I didnt even try with my first so I cant say. I just ended up pregnant. With my #2, #4 and #5 were planned. With #2 it took around 4 months. #4 it took about a year. #5 it took one month. Its different with everyone.

  • You have a 20% chance of getting pregnant each month if you are trying and both healthy.

  • How long have you been trying for? Were you on birth control before trying to get pregnant? And if so how long have you been off birth control?

  • We are ttc #2... I stopped my bc in July 08 and haven't had any luck yet. #1 I can't recall, we really wasn't trying but we wasn't preventing it either. It may take a while or in might just take a few months. Hang it there. GL

  • It took me over 3 years. Every mom is different. Partly it depends on your age, your health, and the age and health of your partner.
    If you are under 30 and have been trying for more than a year, go see a specialist.
    If you are over 30 and have been trying for more than 6 months, go see a specialist.
