  • It took us 3 of the longest years of my life :) Don't give up, it'll happen when you least expect it.

  • After we got married it took us 6 months to get pregnant with our first (I'd been on the pill and I think it messed up my fertility) but got pregnant on my first try with the second, almost straight away with the 3rd, and our 4th, 5th and 6th were without trying at all.

  • The first time I got pregnant, it took nine months. But at the time I was not trying. I got pregnant on the pill. I have been trying for baby #2 for about 3 years off and on. Nothing yet, but I am still hopeful. Just be patient and it will happen! HAVE FAITH!

  • Well with my lil boy me and his dad were together a yr and rarely used anything and I didn't get pregnant for almost a yr and nnow me and my boyfriend (not baby daddy) have been trying 6 months and still nothing but I've read even for a healthy fertile couple it could take up to a yr so jst keep trying :) after all that's the best part

  • With regular intercourse:

    about 50% of healthy couples get pregnant after 4-5 months
    70% get pregnant after 9 months
    85% get pregnant after one year

    Keep trying! Best of luck :)
