  • About 4 months. I think it was pretty much cause I had no Idea what I was doing. I didn't look into ovulation or anything we just had sex.. Assuming I had planned around ovulation and such it may have been sooner

  • Almost 2 years. It's really hard to get pregnant when you don't ovulate.

  • 8 or 9 months.

    I was on BCP for 2 years before I stopped taking them and I believe that is one of the reasons it took so long.

  • #1~took us about 6 mths to get pregnant once we started trying.
    #2~took us a year to get pregnant after we started trying.
    #3~just happened LOL. We never really tried but we werent exactly cautious either and it was about 6 mths after we stopped being cautious that it happened.

  • I never tried, but God intervened.
    I was on different strengths of bc pills when I became pregnant three times. They were also born 2 1/2 years apart.
    My husband thought something was fishy after the second pregnancy so he watched me take my bc pill every single day after that and was amazed when I became pregnant again.
    The OB told me I was "as fertile as the Napa valley" so we got my tubes tied. That bc method has worked well for the past 15, almost 16, years. :)
