  • You've only been trying to conceive since April? Unfortunately, conceiving is not like flipping a switch. You don't necessarily get pregnant as soon as you stop birth control. In fact, your probability of getting pregnant is only 20% per cycle.

    If the pregnancy test was negative, and you've got your period, then most likely you're not pregnant.

    It took me 2 years to get pregnant. I'm not saying it's going to take you just as long, but it's actually rarer to get pregnant right away, so be patient, enjoy trying, and if there is a problem, get yourself to a reproductive endocrinologist.

  • my sister in law had a hard time getting pregnant after getting off birth control, it might be because of the birth control. ask your doctor if your birth control can do that

  • You've only been trying since April...that''s not long at all honey..also you have to remember that it takes time for all the chemicals from the birth control to leave your body...It took me a year and 4 months of trying once I stopped my birth control and I'm only 27...have patience, know that stress is not conducive to pregnancy and enjoy the trying part =)

  • Tell your husband that YOU have to "finish" after HE has made his "deposit"

  • YOU HAVE ONLY BEEN TTC SINCE April? And you are complaining already?

    It can take up to a year to concieve in perfectly healthy couples. If you are coming off of birth control it can take the birth control 6 months to leave your system which is why it is recommened to stop taking it about 6 months BEFORE starting to TTC.

    Get the book Taking Charge Of Your Fertility and learn how your body works. You will get pregnant MUCH faster if you chart and actually have intercourse when you are FERTILE.

    As for the heavier period that is probably a result of coming off of the birth control.

  • Yep, patience...took us a few years, too. Keep track of your periods, know when you're ovulating (it took me a while to figure out that my cycles are 5 weeks long instead of the "normal" 4 weeks, so I wasn't ovulating 2 weeks after the 1st day of my period...but 3 weeks. That 1 week adjustment makes a difference!!
