What birth control were you on before you stopped and started trying for a baby? adult content

How long did it take you to get pregnant? My first I was in HS not on 1st time I ended up pregnant, when I got married and decided we wanted another baby (since he adopted my 1st child) I was ont the patch and it took us over a year to get pregnant!!! (We had an appt with a fertility Dr because of it!) and my last must have been a few weeks or so after the birth of #2 before I started new BC

  • 1st - Condom took 2 1/2 weeks
    2nd - Diaphragm one time
    3rd - patch off for 7 months before we got pregnant. didn't use anything during that time. Did not ovulate till the last two months. First month I was working nights and hubby days so did not hit the right time. But the second month we had the same schedule and knew we hit the right time.

    second child -- I had my IUD removed, and we tried for almost 9 months afterwards before we finally got pregnant.

  • #1- I went off of Ortho Tri Cyclen Low to start TTC. My body was having a horrid reaction to the birth control and it really messed up my cycles. It took us nearly a year to get pregnant.

    #2-I was charting with Fertility Awareness Method because after the first I decided I would not longer put hormonal birth control into my body. We just simply switched from charting to avoid pregnancy to charting to achieve pregnancy and BAM I got pregnant in one month.
