Hi Cafemoms. 


How long did it take you to get pregnant? I was on birth control pills for about 9 months. Stopped taking them 5 months ago. Cycles are varying between 28-35 days. I have been using OPKs and charting my bbt. Looks like I ovulate based upon both of these methods ,so I think that we are timing everything right. stork

Head over to the ttc forum. I have been ttc for 2 years and got pregnant in November but miscarried. This week I had an ectopic that cost me the bean and my left tube. A healthy couple can take a year to ttc naturally though. Good luck.

I was not on any form of birth control and it took DH and I 14 months to conceive our first.

My cousin was on the pill for around 6 years when she stopped to conceive.  It took her somewhere between 9 months to a year to conceive.

Number 1 and 3 were a surprise.  2 and 4 took about a year each.

Everyone is different.  With my first it happened unexpectedly.  My 2nd was conceived after a year and dealing with some annovulation issues.  My 3rd was an ectopic after a year of trying and my 4th was conceived another year later after continued infertility issues due to annovulation and a round of clomid.

Good luck!

We started trying once we were married and it only took us 7 months to get pregnant the first time then 6 months after our daughter was born I'm pregnant again! No idea what we did besides the obvious sex lol. Try taking prenatals and keep track of your ovulation.
