  • The only way we "tried" was to not prevent it.
    1st child after being on the pill for many many years - 6 months
    2nd child after being on the ring for 3 years - 3 months

  • After stopping the pill we were pregnant within a month with all 4 of ours. It sounds like you are going in the right direction though. All my friends that have tried for extended periods of time have become pregnant after they stopped seriously trying. I hope that your wait is not too much longer.
