How long did it take you to conceive?

Did you and your SO have to try for a long time, or did you get pregnant really quickly?

Did anything you do (or take) help you conceive faster?

A month after we stopped using protection. No, just did it the old fashion way.

It took us 2.5 years to conceive this baby boy.  After we tried for about 2 years I had my tubes unblocked during an HSG procedure and then 6 months after that we conceived.

I got pregnant a year and a half after I got off the pill. It took a year for my body to get back onto it's natural cycle, then for 6-months we stayed baby-free using the calendar method... and then one night, even though we knew it was an off day, we couldn't keep our hands off of eachother, and that little bugger stuck!

Guess I should say how fast it happened for me, since I started this post!  I tried to conceive in my 20's and never got pregnant.  I don't know if that was because I'd been on the depo provera shot for a long time, or if I simply was unlucky.

Fast forward to now (about 20 years) and I started trying in July and was pregnant by mid August.  I was surprised to get pregnant so quickly, partly because I am older, and mostly because I heard it could take a while.  I feel very blessed!  :)

1st I was on the pill but it ended in miscarriage at 5 weeks. 

2nd 2.5 weeks

3rd one time

4th two months of trying but we knew the first month we did not hit the right time. 

5th got pregnant while we were using a condom

6th we tried for two months. Again we knew we did not hit the right time. So it did not surprise us. 

We did nothing special. Just had lots of fun.
