My partner and I are trying to concieve our first child. We are both 28 and have no children. We are both healthy, non-smoking and non-drinking peeps. I have been on the pill for 12 years and came off in Feb (11th) So far I have had 1 cycle (still in first cycle) and by the looks of it we havent concieved this month.
How long did it take for you to concieve your first baby???

2nd cycle for number one for me, I had been on the pill for about 8 years.
3rd cycle for number 2, had only been back on the pill for about 10 months.

I lost count after the first year! It took 2 years and 2 months.

Not sure how many cycles as mine were long and irregular. It took us about a year. X

We were very fortunate to conceive 2nd cycle. Had been off pill for 2 years after having coil fitted

First bfp took a year but don't know how many cycles as they were all over the place from 12 days to 90 days. Ended in a mmc.
Second bfp took 4 cycles post d&c but three cycles were on infertility treatment. Ended in a mc.
Third bfp took 4 cycles and I am now 32 weeks.
three chemical pregnancies in between. So it took nearly 2 years of ttc'ing for a sticky pregnancy.

No idea, as we weren't trying.
C was the result of a broken condom, at the end of a 3 month relationship. I was 17. Non smoker, and drank far too much alcohol.
No.2 was concieved during a 2 week fling. (Failed pill, ended in mc) I was 24, non smoker, still drinking far too much.
No.3 took 5/6 months, with H and I only being able to see each other every other weekend. I was 25, non smoker, and barely drinking.
So, my only planned pregnancy took the longest.

We had been trying for 7 years and I got my first BFP last week after ICSI!

About 12 cycles for me. Good luck! x

1st cycle for us.
I came off the pill 6 months before ttc after ten years on it. We started ttc on 10th April and had bfp by 20th!
3.5 years for the first, wasn't even trying to the second.
It is worth remembering that the average couple will conceive within 12 mths.

3 cycles for us, although they were really long, so was over 6 months

1 cycle, we were just very lucky.
31/03/2013 at 19:12
First cycle for me- we weren't consciously trying just seeing what happened and got lucky- I was 26 when we conceived
31/03/2013 at 20:06
Fourth cycle here. Feel lucky that it happened so quickly as cycles weren't settled yet after coming off the pill.
