Jellybabe - August 26

My husband (26) and I (23) are trying to concieve baby #1.I've just ovulated between the 19 and 23rd of August, and i am anxiously waiting for any signs.It's our 4th time trying and we are begining to get a bit worried and worked up.How long does it normally take for couples to concieve?I am taking pre-conception pills, having sex when i'm ovulating and used ovulation tests twice already.Please can anyone give advice!?

Hi Jellybabe! When I started ttc, everyone told me that I should give it a year. I think it is really common for it to take up to a year to concieve for the first time. Try not to worry about it, sweetie, I'm sure you will be blessed soon!

Give it a year, but I know some go in even after 6 months if they are really worried about it.

Hi Jellybabe, like the others said its normal to take up to a year to conceive. Normal couples with no infertility issues normal have a 25% chance to conceive each month. So eventually in a year it may happen. My doc wouldn't even do anything with me until we tried for a year. Its been 2yrs of TTCing and I'm on Clomid and Metformin but I'm still positive.

Hi Jellybabe! My husband & I have been trying to get pregnant for over 8 months now(boy, time is flying by!). MY OB-GYN ran blood tests twice to confirm that I have high prolactin (34). And she has put me on DOSTINEX. Have started it last wednesday. Hoping this drug will help us! Good luck to all of us!

Hi Jellybabe! Don't worry about it too much as stress can also be a factor. I am 24 and this will be our second cycle ttc baby # 1. We are also getting quite frustrated to tell you the truth. I've been on BC for almost a year. Have you been using any BC before ttc? I'll keep my fingers crossed for you and let's hope that your September af will not show up!
