How Long Did It Take You to Get Pregnant?

Hi, I am 34 and my husband and I have been trying for almost four months. I know it is not a long time but my sisters always got pregnant on the first try. This has made me anxious. Can people tell me other experiences so I can relax?

hi there, my name is rosario tobar, I am 16 and i've been married for six months. I got pregnant in march of this year, and I had been trying since last november. Then I had a miscarriage at the end of may, so there went my efforts!!! I got on birth control for about three months, and got off in september, and have been trying to concieve ever since, but no luck!!! I'm not sure if the miscarriage or birth control have anything to do with it. But keep on trying, and best of luck!!!

It Will Happen Soon Enuff.
Hi,

i am 38, and I have gotten pregnant on every form of b/c. No lie. I have an 11 year old daughter and with her it was the pill. Then in 2004 I was on depo and it happened twice. I miscarried both times though. Then in august this year I was back on the pill again and I got pregnant. So I guess everybody's body is just different. I was told that once I was on depo that it takes about a year to 18 months to conceive. Yeah, right. I got pregnant within 5/6 months after my second shot of depo. But not to worry my sister-in-law has been trying for 8 years, and it just happened. So hang in there and hopefully something gud will happen soon. After my miscarriages my doctor told me 'nothing before its time' and I firmly believe that. Once you have exhauste dthe fact that there is nothin wrong with you medically then you will get pregnant, just a matter of time really. God works in mysterious ways, his wonders to perform, always remember that :p

One broken condom when I was 23 resulted in my first pregnancy (and miscarriage). This baby was planned, I too am 34! I've had cysts with ovulation. The doctor was convinced I has poycystic ovarian syndrome (pcos hard to lose weight, cysts, facial hair, etc.) anyway I had a iud for nearly 10 years. I had it removed since it's time was up........And I was pregnant withing 1.5 months. The doctor was amazed, and happy (what a great guy!). My husband said "i knew I had good swimmers" meaning his sperm was above average. He's pretty amazing, so it's a good thing all around!

I have a friend that has a 18 month old, she is 24. She and her husband tried for 6 months before she was pregnant again. She's now 24 weeks.
I recall that I was ovulating, I noticed the mucus......And made the moves on my husband. It was easy :) it also takes time, i've heard just 25% get pregant right away. Some can take up to a year. Jus have sex all the time, and it will happen :)

I stopped the pill in may this year when me and hubby started trying for our first and fell pregnant in august (3 months). I started to worry in july cause nothing was happening but decided to forget about trying for a while and just let nature do its thing. Try to relax (i know its hard) it does help.

Good luck, lets us know how things go.

It took 11 months with our first but miscarried. My guess why it took that long is because I am so stressed out with my work!! My second only took 2 months (after my miscarriage). My guess is because I am more relaxed, no stressful job to worry and we do it when I am ovulating. Just relax and enjoy the intimate moments you spend together... And it will just happen when you least expect it. Goodluck.
