 For those that tried for a second baby how long did it take you? Were you on BC before? Did you have any medical conditions?

We are ready to try for our second baby. I know everyone is different I am just curious as to how long it took you ladies. Thanks!

After our first I had a Paraguard put in.  Therefore, I had NO hormones in my body.  We conceived the very day I had it removed :)

With our first I was on the pill for years, and it took us around 10mos to conceive.

I had my iud removed in June. I wanted to have a couple cycles before we started trying. And he wanted the baby to be due in June. We had sex twice. Once a few days before my period and again the day after ovulation. Well, the first try was it. I went to the drs three weeks later :)

I was on mirena. Had it taken out in the end of October. First week of nov had a period and dec was back in the office for the ultrasound. # 3 was even better. Bc wasn't going well so I quit taking it. We ha as twice and I wasn't even having periods due to bf. we weren't trying. DH pulled out both times and I was pregnant anyways. We knew it was a risk and would be ok with another so we didn't worry about it. My tubes are tied now.

We were ready to conceive again when ds was 4months old. I had to ween ds because i hadnt had a pp period yet. Ds was completely weened at 7months. 2 weeks later i had my first and only period. Ds was conceived just as quickly though. We stopped using bc once we got married, and conceived 2 weeks later.

First try....literally. I was wanting to take my time and enjoy the process! Nope! But that's a blessing and now have a 6 week old beautiful son;) I was not on BC and have no medically issue. I tried 6 months before that and did not work. A psychic said to take Royal Jelly under your tongue on an empty stomach every a.m.. Great fertility benefits;) waited till that one time and it worked! Got a baby
