Exclamation Wonderin...?

I was on Orthro Tricyclen Lo for about five months. My boyfriend and I have been tryin' to get pregnant for about another 5 months. I got off of it in May and it is now October and i'm still not pregnant. We try different times each month to see if that'll help but nothin'. I don't understand whats wrong and neither does he. We have been together for two and a half years so I don't have an STD or anything to prevent it. I would really like to know why I can't get pregnant. If you have any answers please respond! Thanx! <3 Krissy

Re: Wonderin...?

You could purchase ovulation predictor tests to see when you ovulate. Not everyone ovulates on day 14. They are a bit more expensive than pregnancy tests but they work very similar. Relaxation is important too. The more you stress sometimes the hearder it is to conceive.

Good luck to you!

Re: Wonderin...?

I was on Ortho-Tri-Cyclen for over 4 years and I got pregnant in 4 months. My midlife, told me that about the soonest or average time after coming off the pills is about 4 months, so give it time. Are you getting married soon?

Re: Wonderin...?

A woman only has a 20-25% chance of getting pregnant each month. I have read on average, it takes 6 months to get pregnant. If you don't get pregnant after 12 months, then it is recommended to see a doctor about it. I wouldn't worry about it too much. Just have fun!

OrangeCouture, what does getting married soon have to do with it?

Re: Wonderin...?

After getting of the pill it can take upto a year before you ovulate, or even get pregnant, just be pateint it will happen, your doctor wont even do anything until you have been trying at least a year
