Hi everyone! I'm new to this website but spent hours on it yesterday after finding it. I'm 25 and my husband is 26, we have been trying for 3-4 months and boy is it more complicated than I thought ! I literally could have bought a car with what I have spent on BC and it turns out sex does not always = baby. Anyway I love reading everyone's stories and wonder if anyone has any experience with TTC after BC , knows how long it usually takes ?

Thanks and babydust to all :)

Welcome to the site!! I read quite a bit before I joined as well. The ladies here are awesome! As far as bc goes I have gotten many mixes reviews from different sources. Ive been on b/c since I was 11/12..Im 23. My RE put me on a very, very high estrogen bcp. He said that i can stay on it until the cycle want to try (af will start around christmas) then start clomid, another hormone, trigger shot, then iui. So.
..long story short it depends on what kind of bcp and your body. Baby dust to you!! Ill be watching for updates!
Me- 23severe endo. Docs think it's in bowel & bladder & warned I could end up with colostomy and or urostomy if a full hyst is not done asap.

Welcome!! I love this site, it helps keep me sane lol. I was on bc since I was 17 until this past February, (I am 26 will be 27 in a few months). Hubs and I have been TTC for 6 months now. How long have you been off bc?? And how long have you been TTC? It took 6 weeks for me to get my first real cycle once I stopped taking it, and my cycles have been fairly regular I guess with a few exceptions. I started temping this cycle (which I highly recommend!) it helps me feel less crazy and it's kinda cool to see what's going on with your body. I put the data into Fertility Friend!
Me(27) DH(27)
TTC#1 Since July 2013

5/2014: DH's SA shows high count, motility, and morphology!
