How long did it take you to get pregnant with your 1st and then with your 2nd? Were you on birth control before the first or 2nd? It took me about 4 months to get pregnant with the first after being on BC for 10 years we are going to be trying again starting in about a month (my daughter will be 7 months) and I have been on the low estrogen BC for breastfeeding for the past 5 months and then will be on the regular horomone birth control for 1 month before trying.

with my 1st one i got pregnant about 2 weeks after hubby and i started dating, that was 15 years ago and i was not on birth control. My 2nd i got pregnant a month after i stopped birth control that i was on for 5 years. This one took 9 months to get prgnant after i stopped birth control that i was on for 8 years.

I was on a high estrogen birth control for 4 years.I stopped taking it November 27th 2012 and didn't get pregnant for 13 months after. I am now 13w6d with my first. :)

1st 2 1/2 weeks and 2nd one time - We used condoms with our first before we tried for 6 months. Before that I was on the pill. After getting pregnant and having a miscarriage. I decided to get off of it and let my body heal. With our second we use diaphragm and condoms.

I hadn't taken birth control for over a year and my husband and I have never had protected axe we wanted a baby.... We got together in February thought we were pregnant in May and we were devastated and after three months of trying and no success we wrot babies off because my oldest sister can't have kids my second sister can the third can't the fourth can and we thought it was a pattern lol sorry for the rambling..... So we were surprised to find out after three weeks of me being horribly sick and having to go to the ER that we were expecting I found out in sept and we are trying for our second now:) good luck to u

I got pg right away with my first. I had been off the pill for about 4 months. My second took 3 cycles BUT I was also trying Shettles for a girl so that contributed since we had to stop having sex a few days before ovulation. I did not go back on the pill between 1 and 2. My current pg took 4 cycles

I was on Trilevelen (or generic) with # 1 and #2. I got pregnant within 3 months of stopping the pill both times. I was on Depo for 4.5 years between #2 and this one. It took us 2 years to conceive.

My kids will be 10 and 7 when this one comes.
